On Wednesday, children ages 5-11 gathered at the Brier Library for a “Solstice Science” presentation.
Brier librarian Heather Orsen explained the reasoning behind why it gets dark in the winter, how the seasons change and how other cultures celebrate the start of winter.
“I hope after today, you can tell anyone about the solstices,” Orsen said at the beginning of the presentation.
At the end of the presentation, children were able to make their own sundial.
