Multi-Library Collaboration: A Recent Example

26 April 2021

Each February our specialized library helps plan the annual Engineering Day event at the Peoria Riverfront Museum. Knowing there are many public libraries in our area that offer STEM resources, we sent out an invite for them to participate along with us.

Due to COVID, this year’s event was online. The Museum created a Virtual Engineering Day website with links to activities from local community groups. The website was promoted to teachers, parents, and the public.
