Pi.pngIt’s Pi Day!

The day to celebrate pi, the mathematical constant that describes the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, is finally here.

Celebrate by doing complex math equations, having pi recitation competitions with your friends to see who can remember the famously unending number out to the most decimal places (the current world record is 70,030 places) or visiting the Pi Day website.

Or you can do what most people do and take advantage of the famous number’s homophonous relationship with a certain type of dessert and go out for a slice. And while you’re out, eating pie and thinking about pi, feel free to stop into the Moline Library and pick up that book on math (or desserts) that you have been meaning to read. It’s always a good day for pi(e) at the library.
