We were able to provide more individualized science learning by having our events in the library and with a smaller group rather than a large group in a community hall setting. Our format allowed for a great deal of one-on-one interaction between our science partners and patrons as well as between the patrons themselves which facilitated meeting their specific needs and interests. There was an immediate connection between the patron questions and the resource (science partner). Our discussion groups definitely had a neutral, nonjudgmental energy which encouraged participation.
Our Nature program led to some meaningful interaction between our biologist and the patrons by relating issues from When the Killing’s Done with endangered animals in our community.
