A STEAM ‘n’ Summer to Build a Better World

STEAM fun comes to the Littlestown Library this summer with family events and programs, long-time favorites and new excitement!  Super Science, totally Technology, excellent Engineering, awesome Art, and magical Math are bursting with hands-on activities, cool crafts and secret science tricks.  Reading is still great fun, but be sure to get outside and “Go Adams” county! Explore historical sites, make an etching, get “off the grid”, take a walk, explore flowers and trees.  Learn, play, and yes, read – all are great ways to ‘build a better world’, earn prizes and be cool during a “steam ‘n’ summer”.
