 RICHLAND, WA - It may be summer break for a lot of local students, but inquiring minds are never at rest. A crowd of sixth through 12th graders that showed up at the Richland Public Library this afternoon. The dozens of kids were there for the first ever CSI: Richland. The kids got a hands-on look at forensic science, like how to lift fingerprints and study blood spatter.

"I've always been interested in forensic science. I have a book on current forensic science, I watch a ton of forensic science shows. It's just interesting," said seventh grader, Lydia Mitchell.

The library partnered with the Richland Police Department to host the one afternoon class. They plan to do more of them in the future. 

However, the Library has tons of events going on all summer long. You can check them out here: http://www.richland.lib.wa.us/
