STEAM for Teens & Tweens
Introduction to Forensic Science (Grades 6 – 12)
Saturday, March 20, 2021, 3:00 to 5:00 pm
SPACES ARE LIMITED — REGISTER NOW!
Join the Library Foundation and Loreen Rivera as she guides students through a crime scene investigation. Participants will get the opportunity to learn skills and concepts behind the physical aspects of crime scene investigation and forensic science. They will explore biometrics and fingerprinting, work on identifying the marks on a bullet to match it to the weapon that shot it, and will cross-match blood types to identify the offender.
This event is the second in a series. Visit this page to see new additions to this series as they are announced.

Getting Ready to Grow — Free Seeds at OPL
Seeds are available to all interested gardeners during regular library hours. The library is simple to use; sign up for a membership, choose your seeds, take them home and plant! At the end of your growing season, if you harvest seeds, bring some back to the library to share for next year's planting season.
The Orange Seed Lending Library now has two locations — one is on the 2nd floor of the Orange Public Library & History Center, and the second is located in the El Modena Branch Library.
