TINY hands will be able to explore all the contours of science when a new club starts at Bathurst Library.
The library is looking for youngsters to enrol in its Little Bang Discovery Club, a program for children aged three to five years and their accompanying adults.
Over the six-week program, children will build their science knowledge by conducting experiments with everyday objects and exploring scientific processes such as classifying, measuring and collecting, according to library manager Patou Clerc.

The children will also be allowed to borrow a Little Bang Discovery Box filled with objects to get them started on their STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) journey, as well as a booklet filled with activities to keep them learning at home.
Ms Clerc said this will be the first year the library has offered the popular educational program.
"Young children are naturally inquisitive, curious and keen to learn and they are already great scientists without even knowing it," she said.
The club will be held at the library on Monday mornings from 10.30am, starting Monday, February 1.
Spaces are limited and bookings are essential, according to Ms Clerc. Call the library on 6333 6281 or visit www.bathurst.nsw.gov.au/library for more information.
