The Terryville Public Library has received a $500 grant from the American Society of Radiologic Technologists to purchase books and educational materials on medical imaging and radiation therapy. 

The grant program is part of National Radiologic Technology Week®, an annual event that recognizes the vital work of medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals across the nation. The celebration takes place each year during the week that includes Nov. 8 to commemorate the discovery of the x-ray by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen on Nov. 8, 1895. 

This year’s event takes place Nov. 3-9, 2019. The Terryville Public Library exhibit marking National Radiologic Technology Week will be available during regular library hours from November 4 to November 15. A special program, “X-Ray Fun” will be held on Thursday, November 14, 2019 from 6 PM – 7 PM.

Children ages 6 and up will learn and experiment with x-rays. They will use a light table to see animal and human x-rays, play with a magnetic human body set, and more. Registration for this program is requested by calling the library at 860-582-3121. 

As part of the ASRT National Library Partnership grant program, hundreds of libraries across the United States will present book displays related to the radiologic sciences, medical imaging, radiation therapy and the pioneers of radiologic technology during National Radiologic Technology Week. 

The Terryville Public Library is located at 238 Main St, Terryville, CT 06786
