In case you aren't already following the Library As Incubator blog, there is a fun, practical post about a terrific STEAM program for teens (I think it would work for younger kids, too). Black-light painting at the Eager Free Library in Evansville included experimenting to find the best ratios for maximum glow in the paint recipe.

Over the course of the past few years, Christy from Pepin has been participating in grant projects, attending workshops and webinars, and generally paying attention to early literacy information. This year, the children's area underwent a bit of transformation to incorporate more room for play, more items to play with, and a more differentiated area. Take a peek:
The children's area is now purple, which sets it off from the other areas of the library. You can see a workbench next to the kitchen. The library moved around some of the collection (hanging bags with books and CDs) to accommodate the new items.
