Explore Space Exhibit

We’ve had several really great programs revolving around the “Explore Space” exhibit.  It’s been exciting to see kids from Meade and from other communities enjoy learning about space.  Thanks goes to Meade Grade School for sending out fliers to all of their students to let them know


what’s going on at Meade Public Library.
