It was a nice event except too many people and not enough space.

Excellent content. Huge crowd. Kind of hard to hear presenter with all the noise in the crowd. Wish the volume was louder on the mic.

The presenters were wonderful! I truly enjoyed the presentation. There were an awful lot of people, but that's just because this kind of solar eclipse does not happen too often at all!

My daughters aged 6 and 8 enjoyed it. A tangible, basic way of looking at computer programming. They could take the kits home. Would do it again!

Came with my 2 great grandkids, 7 & 9. They selected Jenga, Marvel Memory Game, and Candyland. They played a quick game of Jenga, were very competitive with Memory, but didn't have time for Candyland. Librarian Shirley was very friendly and helpful, and we had a fun time. Plan to come again.
