Speaking of college, at the library, we like to think we are also developing today’s kittens into tomorrow’s ‘Cats.


TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF SCIENCE VS. THE AVERAGE AMERICAN

blue moonTonight is White House Astronomy Night, celebrating achievements in STEM throughout the year. Among invited guest are Ahmed Mohamed, the ninth grade student recently arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school. So, what better day to compare your knowledge of basic science concepts to the average American? The Pew Research Center recently created an online quiz that allows you to test your skill – and found that most Americans could do a bit of refreshing!

 


QUOTE OF THE DAY

On this day in 1985, the very first Blockbuster video rental store opened. Blockbuster? What’s that? By now, the tapes and DVDs you rented and never returned are gathering dust in the far corners of storage boxes. But back in the day, video rental was the jam. Fitting that the last movie rented from Blockbuster was the film This Is the End!
