School age children and their families are invited to drop in at the Busch and Miller branches to explore STEAM concepts with the library’s new maker kits.

A new kit or two will be available each week for children to play, learn, and explore a different area of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art or Math. Each kit will contain a book on the subject, objects and tools for simple projects, and activities related to that kit’s STEAM topic. Stop by and try something new!

This is a drop-in program, no registration needed. Please call the Miller Library at 586.751.5377 or the Busch Library at 586.353.0580 for more information.

This project is funded (in part) with a Library Services and Technology Act grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services administered by the Library of Michigan.”
