Tompkins County Public Library and Cornell University’s Science Engineering and Educational Development program will host “Eccentric Electric Paper and The Shy Magnet that Could,” a family-friendly science program exploring circuits and magnetism, February 9 from 2 to 3 p.m. in the Library’s Thaler/Howell Programming Room.

Through fun-filled, hands-on activities, families with children ages five and up will learn the foundations of electricity by using graphite and wires to light up a bulb and explore the topic of magnetism through fun experiments with copper pipes.

This program is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Brenna Funfar at
