NATURE EXPLORIUM

 
General Information
Description of ServiceMiddle Country Public Library is proud to be the first library in the nation to offer the Nature Explorium, an outdoor learning space for children and families. Developed in collaboration with the Dimensions Educational Research Foundation and Long Island Nature Collaborative for Kids (LINCK),the Nature Explorium contains a variety of areas, all geared toward connecting children to a different aspect of nature. Whether they're reflecting on a poem under a willow tree, climbing on a tree stump, or expressing artistic talent through song and dance on the Play It Stage, children will discover the gift of nature. When children have regular contact with nature, they learn and grow better. Dedicated to exploration and discovery, the Nature Explorium provides children with the opportunity to learn and reinforce valuable life experiences, including the development of observation skills, visual-spatial skills, and social skills. By providing this outdoor area for the community, the Library offers a unique way to connect literacy, learning and an appreciation for nature as a regular part of the library visit.
