Citizen science enables people from all walks of life to advance scientific research. Citizen science is real science done by people like you! Everett Public Library is part of a first-of-its-kind ASU and SciStarter initiative supported by the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to help libraries connect communities to citizen science!
