School is starting, the weather is getting cooler, and….fall programs are ready to begin at Lemont Public Library! This fall we have programs on everything from Oreos to the college admissions process, with lots of STEAM activities too. In fact, we have some pretty cool new STEAM technology, including a digital sewing machine and green screen, that will be featured in lots of our upcoming programs. See all fall programs by following the Fall 2018 Programs link at the top of the page or by visiting our Event Calendar for more information. Happy Fall!
When: June 4 – July 31
How: Participate in our Learn and Earn Teen Challenge! Teens can check out any library item (including the PS4 to play in the Teen Lounge) or attend a program to receive a scratch-off ticket!
Why: Teens will either instantly win a small prize (think candy, water bottles, lanyards, books!), or write their name on a non-winning ticket and be entered to win a $50 Amazon gift card at the end of the summer. Teens are limited to one ticket per day.
Interested in cooking, saving money, or de-stressing during final exam season? Sign up for our April and May programs in our Event Calendar to do all this and more!
Visit the Teen Space at Lemont Library to see our Women’s History Month display and check out a book about inspiring women in history!
Stay out of the subzero temperatures this winter by attending teen programs at LPL! Create a bullet journal, talk to a popular YA author, and solve a Harry Potter themed escape room in the upcoming months. View our Event Calendar to register for all teen programs.
The Library is pleased to announce that we recently were awarded a $15,000 grant from CITGO Petroleum to fund Launch into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math)!
This program will be designed to engage middle school students (ages 11-14) in hands-on, interest based interaction with science education while inspiring creativity and curiosity. CITGO’s grant will enable us to equip our Teen STEM Lab with appropriate technology, including a 3-D printer and a zSpace: Virtual Reality Learning experience computer. Launch into STEM Learning will include open lab hours as well as bi-monthly programs planned and presented in collaboration with CITGO employees with science expertise. Programming and open lab hours will begin in January.
