The downtown Kamloops branch of the Thompson-Nicola Regional Library operates out of the TNRD Building, downtown at Victoria Street and Fifth Avenue.

Access to fun and hands-on science is now only a library card away.

The Thompson-Nicola Regional Library (TNRL) has teamed up with the Big Little Science Centre (BLSC) to offer its free passes to patrons to borrow with their library card.

The move comes in time for Family Literacy Week in B.C., which takes place through Jan. 28, providing an opportunity for TNRD residents to find different ways to explore, discover and learn.

The pass is valid for one visit per group — up to two adults and all dependent children 18 years of age and under or up to two grandparents with grandchildren who are siblings.

Visitors can place a hold on the pass at, or through their local library. The pass may be borrowed for up to one week. Only one member of the group is required to have a valid library card to acquire the pass.

“Beyond books, we are proud to offer enriching experiences for our patrons to check out from their closest TNRL location,” said Jenny Abramzik, TNRL manager of discovery and support services.

Located at Seymour Street and Fifth Avenue in downtown Kamloops, the Big Little Science Centre was created in 2000 by the late Gordon Gore, a retired science teacher at the time who dedicated his life to teaching science in an interactive environment.

“The BLSC is excited about this partnership. It allows community members who may not have had an opportunity to visit the science centre the chance to do so,” Big Little Science Centre executive director Gord Stewart said.
