The Garden City Public Library’s new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) Workshop will offer activities designed to boost critical thinking, creativity and problem-solving skills through unique hands-on learning opportunities.

In this new space, children will enjoy experimental learning with iPads, a Smartboard, LEGOS and robotic toys all while participating in some of our most popular programs, including LEGO Club, The Baking Coach and arts and crafts programs.

As the construction start date nears, the Children’s Department will be temporarily relocated to the large meeting room on the lower level of the library, with some materials located in storage on site. Staff has already begun moving materials and creating a floor plan for the temporary children’s space, which will have librarians and other staff available on the lower level to assist patrons with book checkout, materials and any other information needs.

Watch the library website, social media and future articles for updates as information becomes available.
