STEM Story Time for 2nd & 3rd Grade Students

Sign up today for our very first STEM Story time! This month’s program will focus on force, motion, and energy.

Participants will listen to a science related story then take part in several activities including building catapults, marble runners, and a roller coaster!

This program is for 2nd and 3rd Grade students only, but we will be adding STEM Story times for various ages in the future.

Space is limited so this program requires registration. Call 660-886-3391 to register today!

Missouri Readers Award Nominees

The librarians of Missouri believe that exposing students to quality literature impacts their future reading habits. These awards encourage students to explore new literary genres, to recognize excellence in writing and illustrating, and to experience the joy of literature.

Winning books receive an award from the Missouri Association of School Librarians.
