Middle Country Public Library is proud to be the first library in the nation to offer the Nature Explorium, an outdoor learning space for children and families. The Nature Explorium contains a variety of areas, all geared toward connecting children to different aspects of nature. Whether they’re reflecting on a poem under a willow tree, climbing on a tree stump, or expressing artistic talent through song and dance on the Play It stage, children will discover the gift of nature. By providing this outdoor area for the community, the Library offers a unique way to connect literacy, learning and appreciation for nature as a regular part of the library visit.
