Summer Science Series!
"Me, My Microbiome, And I:
The Vital Cells of Existence" 
Wednesday, July 18th  
7:00 - 8:30 PM
Cole Room 
 

The library will host the first of several screenings of World Science Festival 2018 videos on July 18th. Stay tuned for the next in the series.

Come join world-renowned microbiologists as they zoom in on the micro world and zoom out on its macro influence. Our microbiome, the collective bacteria, viruses, fungi and other microorganisms that live in the digestive tract, allows us to digest food properly and fight off disease. Research suggests that an unhappy microbiome may contribute to autoimmune diseases, allergies, depression, and even Alzheimer’s.
This free screening is made possible by the World Science Festival.
Please sign up by calling the Library at 508-533-3217 or here at this link
