There will be an OPEN HOUSE on Saturday October 7 of the SCAAPT Physics Library.  The library is a collection of books, videos, and laboratory and demonstration equipment that is freely available to teachers of Southern California to borrow from.  Normally, the library is open by appointment with the librarian (James Lincoln), please let James know if you would like to stop in at another date.

The open house will be from 9am to 2pm and takes place at the library location:
The Physics Library
43 Hartford Drive
Newport Beach, CA

We are always seeking donations of equipment, books, and journals.  This library’s initial operations have been supported by a grant from the Brown Foundation who also funds the SCAAPT New Physics Teacher Workshops.  SCAAPT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and monetary donations are tax-deductible if you would like to support this effort as we try to grow and continue the collection into the future.  Please let James know if you have equipment to donate or have other questions.

At the open house there will also be a kids table of science toys and books (if you have kids) and some light refreshments.  This is an open house so you don’t have to RSVP, simply drop in.  If you would like to let James know you are coming you can email him or make an appointment by phone which is typical of library patrons.
