    Glow under black light, create sparks in the dark with wintergreen lifesavers, and experiment with glow sticks.  Check out the science behind what’s glowing in the dark.  Then, pick up your specially marked copy of Scott Westerfeld’s The Sercet Hour to read, register, and pass for Howard County Library’s Pass the Book.

    Don’t get caught in the dark.  Register for Flame-bringer Science.
