The BOOMbox is an experimental space designed to facilitate STEAM learning for all ages. Every few months the theme of the room will change. Find the BOOMbox in the Youth Services Area of the library.


January 2 to April 15, 2017

Favorite tools and resources related to art and design are making a reappearance. In January, the focus is on rapid prototyping using cutting-edge 2D and 3D design tools. In February, we shift to sewing for fast fashion, along with textile experiments. In March and April we'll explore drawing, painting, and photography through hands-on activities and experiments.
