    The search for planets outside of our solar system, and what it means for finding extraterrestrial life.

    More than 4,000 planets have been discovered circling nearby stars and more are being identified each day.  How are these “other worlds” discovered?  What are their characteristics?  How many are Earth-like?  This talk will focus on the successes of NASA’s Kepler mission - the workhorse for finding exoplanets - but will also cover other means for discovering the exoplanets.  Now that we know that other worlds are ubiquitous, what are the prospects that extraterrestrial life exists?  The presentation also will cover active research efforts for understanding this question, including a summary of NASA’s astrobiology program as well as the extensive efforts, such as SETI, intended to identify signs of life in the cosmos.

    Join us for an evening of good food, good company and cupcakes!  Please bring in a dish to share; we will provide "compostable" utensils and plates.  Feel free to bring your own!  The Whipped Cupcakes Food Truck will provide dessert!  This year, the Library is participating in the Great Give Back.  This program provides a day of opportunities for library patrons to give back to their community.  We encourage you to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Warwick Ecumenical Food Pantry.

    If the weather permits, the dinner will be held on our River Birch Patio; feel free to bring a blanket or lawn chair to sit on.  In the event of rain, it will be in our Community Room.
