ALA Co-Sponsors Unique STEM Program Opportunity

Libraries encourage young patrons to reach for the stars – but rarely in a way as literal as this. ALA, in partnership with the Space Science Institute and National Center for Interactive Learning, encourages you to put your library’s name forward for “NASA @ My Library.”

NASA @ My LibrarySeventy-five libraries across the country, selected by the program sponsors, will receive a variety of educational resources (and other supplies) to coordinate in-library STEM programming specific to astronomy and space exploration. Materials include tablet computers pre-loaded with how-to videos, apps, and educational games you won’t find anywhere else.

In addition, representatives from chosen libraries will be invited to Denver for a special, two-day orientation workshop. “NASA @ My Library” will last approximately 18 months for each public library selected.
