The first half of 2016 has been spent planning and developing policies and implementation plans. We have been incorporating aspects of STEAM into our children’s programs and kicked off the Minecraft Program this summer.  Lego Robotics will be incorporated later this year.  We’re now happy to announce that beginning Saturday, August 6th, the library will host Tech Open Hours or STEAMQuest every Saturday in August from 10:00-11:45am. Come tinker with the Moss Robot, Pocket Minecraft on tablets, Lego Robotics, snap circuits, Littlebits, microscopes, circuit stickers and an art project.
