Maker Buddies

July 8 to August 23

Maker Buddies is a summer learning program that invites kids to explore, invent, create, and hang out with friends at the Library, all summer long! Investigate different STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) concepts each week through fun hands-on activities alongside trained teen volunteers. Try out one week, or come to all seven!

This year there are Junior sessions specially designed for 6-9 year olds, and Tween sessions just for kids aged 10-12.

Sessions run for one hour, and limited spaces are available. Please arrive 15 minutes early for a ticket.
