Update from your Library Director...
Camp Verde Community Library has participated in AZ and Verde Valley SciTech in support of STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) out-of-school learning since 2013. The Children's Library plans S.T.E.A.M. Time (adding A for art) every Friday afternoon. We are into S.T.E.A.M. and into RAIN - Rural Activation Innovation Network, an National Science Foundation grant focusing on informal STEM learning.

You could help us support RAIN in better understanding our community needs and interests regarding informal STEM learning. The key to the survey's success is to have input from a wide demographic. No need to have young children or know anything about STEM. Please take a short survey and be entered to win a $50 Amazon gift card.
