World Class Exhibits that Transform Lives – The library has hosted GIANTS: African Dinosaurs and The Science of Supercroc by the renowned paleontologist Paul Sereno, a professor at the University of Chicago and Explorer-in-Residence at the National Geographic Society. The SPACE:Dare to Dream exhibit included a live chat with NASA Astronaut Clay Anderson. Bringing these amazing and engaging science opportunities into this community has transformed lives. In 2014, the library hosted The Adventures of Clifford the Big Red Dog. Many children engaged with this eye-catching exhibit filled with activities as they learned about how communities come together for the betterment of all.
“Gail Borden Public Library has played a pivotal role in the life of Kristen and Matthew, most notably, the 'Space, Dare to Dream' event. As they continue to pursue their interest in robotics, I remember each of their questions for astronaut Clay Anderson on the ISS Expedition 15; Kristen asked about the computers used on the ISS and Matthew asked about a robotic aerocam that was in development at the time. Today as Matthew and Kristen are moving into yet another level of FIRSTrobotics competitions, FIRST Technical Challenge (FTC) - a high school age program, Kristen is still focused on programming and Matthew is still focused on engineering. This begins their fifth year of competitive robotics and they're still going strong. We are grateful for the continuing opportunities Gail Borden Public Library has provided through the years.” Carol McKellar, mother
