12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
The young crime scene investigators will learn about fingerprints, where prints come from, how prints get left behind, how to print some one’s fingers, how to lift prints from a nonporous surface and how to match prints. Once the young CSI’s are ready they will lift a print from a surface near where a valuable library book was last seen. They will then compare the lifted print to some suspects’ prints and determine whose prints were at the scene. AGES 10+ Free. Registration required. Deadline to register is noon on February 14th. For last minute registration, call 717-665-6700 to check availability.
Parents are welcome to bring siblings upstairs to the Library during the program. Our children’s area has toys, games, puzzles, and, of course, a wide selection of books for younger children.
