Press Release 6/17/2019 – Space Adventures this Wednesday at the Library

Alamosa Public Library’s (APL) Summer Reading Program is out of this world! This year’s theme is “A Universe of Stories,” and each Wednesday at 10 a.m. in June and July, APL and patrons will explore something spacey with a visiting performer. Last week, patrons enjoyed professional storyteller Julie Moss’ tales from this world and others.

This Wednesday, June 19, APL welcomes the team from Science Matters, who are bringing their “Space Adventures” program to the Library. The program will address the question, “What do we know about space?” From gravity to wind to chemical reactions, outer space is a very different place from Earth. Learn about the properties of space, see how rockets make it to space, find out how to make a comet out of dry ice, and maybe even walk on a non-Newtonian surface!

Registered readers can come a few minutes early to collect the beads they have earned through the Read for Beads incentive program. Registration is open online or at Alamosa Public Library. Go to or call Children’s Librarian Holly Van Hoy at 719-589-6592 for more details.
