Welcome to the science part of our virtual library. I hope to give a sampling of recent books added to the library's science collection and to give some links to science web sites. The books will change every few months and the web sites will be added as I come across those I hope readers of this page can use. Please feel free to recommend links for this site and books for the science collection.

The Science Club - http://www.halcyon.com/sciclub/ Site for the nonprofit organization The Science Club, whose philosophy, in part, states: "our goal should not be data for datas sake but the skill of using data to solve problems, to spend our education learning how to think not what to think." The site has a lot of links to other web sites for science projects.
