Taking the learning outdoors is an excellent way to keep learners engaged. Explore the outdoors and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) activities by borrowing an Adventure Kit. Each kit comes with a selection of related books, and access to conservation areas managed by Quinte Conservation.
You can request more books or activities related to your selected kit by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
STEAM, or Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math, are incredibly complementary and we absolutely love developing programs that highlight these important life skills. Some examples of existing Library STEAM programs include:
- 3D Modeling and Design
- Game Design
NEW: Canadian Reference Centre (EBSCO) is now available with your library card!
Available with just your library card number and PIN, you can access a whole other collection of material outside of physical books. Electronic formats for books, music, movies, and more can be found on Overdrive, Kanopy or Hoopla. Ancestry offers an amazing opportunity to explore family genealogy and history. EBSCO with the Canadian Reference Centre is an excellent source for research material and academic sources. And if you’re looking to continue language learning, Mango Languages is your app!
*Disclaimer: links to Library online resources such as Overdrive, Hoopla, and Kanopy are access to the entire available collection, not just what is typically geared towards children.*
