Library receives national science grant
The Basehor library was one of just 75 libraries across the nation to receive a “Pushing the Limits” grant from the National Science Association.
The grant, which primarily targets small community libraries, allows recipients to host a free, four-part discussion series for adults. The series will incorporate various books and videos into discussions about how science affects people’s everyday lives.
“Last year was a pilot program and it was successful enough that they opened up for a second year, so I wrote the grant and we got it,” Weaver said. “We’re really looking forward to it.”
The grant allows recipients to bring in an expert to lead the discussion series. Basehor will welcome Dr. David Johnson, a computer science professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, to lead its sessions.
Weaver said the series will likely take place on consecutive Monday evenings this spring.
