In addition, Family Saturday STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics) activity bags are geared toward school-aged learners.

Pickup for both the Kids Take & Make bags and the STEAM Saturday bags are on Sundays from 3:00-5:00, on a first come first serve basis, while supplies last.

Books are available from the library through contactless pickup, and eBooks are available through our digital library resources.
