Meet Historic Bethlehem curator Brett Peters as he introduces uranium glass.  This decorative glass was popular in the early 20th century and has the unique ability to glow under black light.   In this hands-on session, you will learn the scientific secret behind its special glowing properties, view examples of uranium glass and other glass, shine a black light on each, and discover why these glass items are popular with collectors.  No registration is required.   This event is recommended for grades K – adult.  It will be held in the Youth Services department on the 2nd floor of the library.
