The Scotch Plains Public Library offers a wide range of STEAM based activities for families. These programs are to help our community members develop a life-long love of reading and learning while focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Attending one of our programs is a wonderful way to introduce children to the library and offer additional learning experiences outside of a school setting.
Unless otherwise indicated, registration is required at all programs and is limited to Scotch Plains and Fanwood cardholders only. To check out our schedule, visit our online calendar.
We are happy to customize reading programs and activities to meet the individual needs of anyone on the spectrum. Contact us at [email protected] for more information.
