Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

One of my fondest memories as a child was going to our town library.  …  My sisters and I would lug home as many books as we could carry.  … What beauty on those pages – wondrous illustrations, astonishing journeys, laugh-out-loud antics.  Stories are food for the soul, and my mother fed us well on library books.

February Family Reading Night

Event Date: 
Feb 20 2014 - 6:00pm

Useful…Mysterious…Fascinating!  Historians, who have studied the art and science of cryptology – the use of codes and ciphers – have documented that secret messages have been used for nearly 4,000 years to communicate private information…sometimes between friends, sometimes among military personnel, sometimes by criminals and sometimes by spies! 

In this fun family reading night, families will learn a bit about techniques that change understandable communication to incomprehensible nonsense, as well as a bit of the science involved in some of the processes.

Join us for February Family Reading Night to learn more about this interesting subject, tips for sending your own secret messages, and to check out cool books about the subject!
