Three Richmond libraries will play home to “Space Science” activities this summer, where kids can explore otherworldly curiosities for free.

Sponsored by Scientific Adventures for Girls, Space Science will offer hands-on science activities for the whole family, who can just drop-in. Some of the fun will include exploring exoplanets beyond our solar system; creating a rover and a rocket lander; preparing for a space mission; and discovering how a star’s color and size is determined.

Space Science is blasting off at the Bayview Branch Library on Wednesdays from June 21 to July 19 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. This library branch is located at 5100 Hartnett Ave. in Richmond.

The same program will come to the Westside Branch Library Thursdays from June 22 to July 20 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Find this library branch at 135 Washington Ave. in Point Richmond.

And finally, the program will also make a safe landing at the Main Library on Saturdays from June 24 to July 22 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. The Main Library is at 325 Civic Center Plaza in Richmond.
