It was the Summer of STEM at the library. While school was out, the library was full of children of all ages engaging in science and technology.
Children and parents packed the Training Center for an introduction to 3D printing. Just a short walk away, in Kids' World, a group of toddlers and preschoolers were engineering structures from tubes and connectors in a free-play session. Problem-solving skills were on full display as the hard hat-wearing group of young builders figured out which piece connected where. Nearby, another young visitor played on a felt board featuring honey bees and numbers. As her caregiver prompted her to "count the bees," little did she know, she too was learning through STEM free play and toys provided by the library.
