Libraries revisited

Scheduled classes and events for the summer at public libraries are fast filling up.

More than ever, libraries are hosting innovative programs that support learning across the curriculum. STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics), STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics)and STREAM (science, technology, robotics, engineering, arts, mathematics)focused classes will reach students from preschool through high school.

In a brief survey of listings, I found workshops or events related to soldering, BEAM robotics (biology, electronic, aesthetics and mechanics), knitting, fencing, astronomy, macrame, chess and electric circuitry.

Events are usually free but advance registration is required. In some library systems, no-shows are prevented from signing up for future experiences.
