This is a Year of Discovery at Cary Memorial Library

Year of Discovery is a year long exploration of science and technology. Throughout 2014, we will investigate changes in technology, advances in science, and how these things change our lives. We’ll explore our natural world, conservation efforts, transportation, the intersection of art and music, plus so much more. We’ll be joined by some of the many talented scientists who call Lexington home.

Join us as we discover more about our world and learn from our neighbors.
