August 16th we invite our community to Andover Public Library for the Grand Opening of Explore Earth. At 5pm we will have refreshments and give everyone a chance to examine the Exhibit. At 6 pm Judy Semroc of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History will talk about her passion for the natural world as a conservation specialist with the Natural Areas Division.


Judy Semroc was a petroleum geologist and a teacher before joining the museum, and she has provided inventories of endangered and rare species of plants and animals for the Western Reserve Land Conservancy. Judy uses photographic techniques for field identification of species and uses macro photography to highlight the "faces" of those creatures affected by human activities. She is an expert on attracting beneficial pollinators, including birds, butterflies and other insects to the home landscape.


We inivite all interested persons to join us for this informative talk and to view the Explore Earth Exhibit. Explore Earth: Our Changing Planet is part of the STAR Library Education Network (STAR_Net) led by the National Center for Interactive learning at the Space Science Institute. Exhibit partners include the American Library Association, the Lunar and Planetary Institute and Afterschool Alliance. Explore Earth is supported through a grant from the National Science Foundation.


The Explore Earth Exhibit will remain in Andover Public Library until October 13. The funding allows the Library to provide a number of special programs and speakers we could not otherwise afford to bring to our community. Our library is one of 14 libraries across the US to receive the Exhibit.
