Yankton Community Library

The Yankton Community Library, 515 Walnut Street, invites area young people, grades 6-12, to an exciting adventure in forensic science.  Chief of Police Brian Paulsen will lead teens through a four-day basic forensic science course.   The class, which meets from June 23- 26, 1-2 p.m. each day, is free of charge.  Teens must call the library to register as the class is limited to 15.

The participants will be introduced to basic forensic science techniques and the vast difference between TV forensics and real life.  Teens can expect hands on demonstrations and interactive projects as well as lecture and question/answer.

This opportunity is part of the summer reading program available for teens at the Yankton Community Library.  Teens are invited to register to be a part of our reading program and earn prizes.  We welcome teen volunteers as well to help us with our programs.  Interested teens should email Becky Pittenger at or call the library at 668-5276.
