>Start a Science Club at Your Library with Free Resources From PBS


Create some science buzz at your library by offering hands-on activities from the PBS kids show FETCH! with Ruff Ruffman. The FREE Ruff Guide to Science will help you draw kids (ages 8-10) to your library for six science activities and a game that introduces them to exciting careers in science. This resource, designed with librarians in mind, includes tips on recruiting kids from your community (and managing the lengthy wait list), leader notes, kid direction sheets that can be photocopied, membership cards to start a weekly FETCH Club, and a list of related science books (selected by librarians) to feature so as to increase the circulation of your science collection. No television viewing is required and all activities use easy-to-find, inexpensive materials that wonÕt break your budget. This resource is especially of value to librarians working in public libraries, but could be equally useful at schools where librarians and science teachers collaborate.

To order your FREE copy to be mailed in fall 2008, send an e-mail to including your name, organization, mailing address (please indicate work or home address), email, and phone number.
