Proud to be a VELI-STEM Library!

The grant includes books and other hands-on STEM materials for the 25 libraries, travel to state and national conferences for networking, project assessment and consultation with The Montshire Museum of Science and the Elementary Education Department at Wheelock College. Bradford Public Library’s youth librarian will receive training and programming for young children, parents, and childcare providers in science inquiry and physical science. This grant program officially began in November 2015.
