Pushing the Limits is a four part viewing, reading and discussion program series for adults to explore everyday science. Louisburg Library is one of a number of rural public libraries nationwide receiving grants to host the series.  Pushing the Limits brings together books and video featuring authors, scientists and everyday people who thrive in exploring the natural world.

Since the beginning of time, humans have imagined and achieved ways to push the boundaries of the physical world.  We want to be stronger, smarter, and more aware, and we create stories to bring those dreams to life.  But many of those stories are no longer just stories; and with great new advances in science and technology, we are finding ways in which all of us are able to push the limits every day.

The Pushing the Limits program will explore these ideas in discussions that will include feature film quality videos and recommended popular books.  The overarching theme is one of real people, real stories and real science.

All programs will be held at Louisburg Library. Please REGISTER to participate in this four part series. Free copies of the books were limited to the first 23 people registered.  More copies  of the books are available for check out.
