Subject Week: Science fiction vs. Facts

September 28, 2020

Sometimes is difficult to tell the difference between science fiction and science facts. Many sci-fi books and movies are inspired by real scientific inventions while others seem highly unlikely to be true, and there are others that were once fiction but become reality today.  If you feel inspired by these questions, come by and grab a book!
