In honor of National Chemistry Week (NCW), October 18-24, 2015, a collection of chemistry books will be on display and available for browsing and borrowing. This year’s theme is “Chemistry Colors Our World” focusing on the chemistry of food colors, dyes, pigments, fireworks, etc. There are live demos going on all over the Cincinnati area at libraries and the Cincinnati Museum Center. According to the American Chemical Society (ACS), “NCW encourages chemists and chemistry enthusiasts to build awareness of chemistry at the local level. Local Sections, businesses, schools, and individuals are invited to organize or participate in events in their communities with a common goal: to promote the value of chemistry in everyday life.” Visit the ACS website at http://www.acs.org to learn more.
Erin Barger is a Student Assistant for the UCBA Library and also serves as the Vice President of the UCBA Chemistry Club. The UCBA Chemistry Club will be helping with a demo at Deer Park Library on Friday, October 23rd from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm. Volunteers are welcome.
