Library Receives Science Kit Grant

We are proud to announce that The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)—Chicago Section has awarded us a $2,000 grant to help fund science kits for children and teens interested in exploring STEM concepts. The IEEE grant will be combined with donations from the Warrenville Public Library Designated Fund of the DuPage Foundation and individual gifts from library supporters to specially curate science kits to meet the needs of the community. The kits will be available for check out to WPLD Members beginning June 4.

Science Kits Open House • Saturday, June 2 • 1–3 pm • All Ages

Introducing the Library’s newest collection—mobile science kits! Join us at the open house event to see and hear all about the new science kits available for check out to Warrenville Library Members beginning June 4. Students can use the kits, which consist of tools and devices centered around specific themes, to explore science and other STEM concepts. Suggestions for experiments and supporting materials, like instructional books and DVDs, will be included in most science kits. The science kit loan period of two weeks provides opportunities to conduct multiple observations and experiments, much more time than school science class or other programs allow. Join us at the Science Kit Open House and enter a prize drawing to win a membership to SciTech Museum in Aurora.
