Mae McLynn of Athlone Library said,

‘We are really pleased to once again team up with Midlands Science to provide a number of exciting events in Westmeath Libraries during Science Week 2019. We place a lot of focus on outreach in the local community-  it is really important that we provide services and resources to people of all ages through education programmes, interactive workshops and events which make the library accessible to everyone. The Midlands Science Festival provides plenty of opportunities for this across the region. This year we are looking forward to hosting ‘Travels in Chernobyl’ on November 12th at 6.30pm in Athlone Library. This explores the accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant which took place on April 26th, 1986. We are also anticipating a magical  day on November 13th in Athlone Library as we introduce school children to  ‘The Science of Harry Potter There are lots of other events taking place so check out https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/midlands-science-for more details on how you can celebrate science this November.’
