The Universe of Stories summer reading theme and Rocket Camp Week at the Stephen’s Central Library in San Angelo, TX, proved to be a great ride this past summer. Summer reading and Rocket Camp are activities that the library has had in the past, but something new at the library this year helped patrons gain a better understanding of Earth and space. In early spring, the library installed a NASA@ My Library display designed to gage people’s interest in Earth and space science and to determine if people’s interest grows over time.
A “lunch and learn” project this past summer at three public libraries in Maine helped bring fun hands-on STEM literacy to the library and provided a healthy lunch at the same time. The summer-long project was in collaboration with Maine Campus Compact, Department of Education, Cornerstones of Science, McArthur Public Library in Biddeford, Lewiston Public Library, and Bangor Public Library.
