We really enjoyed partnering with 4-H on Wheels in Lone Tree this summer. Library staff traveled to Lone Tree once a week to check out Library materials to children based on the weekly 4-H on Wheels theme. All the topics were related to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).
There were 26 youth signed up for the program, and they check out 48 books over the past 5 weeks. Fifteen children signed up for Library Cards during the 4-H on Wheels registration process and received their cards in the mail. Staff issued another 10 library cards at the park in Lone Tree.
It was a lot of fun seeing the children participate in science experiments, create art projects, play games, and eat nutritious snacks, and then come over to the Library table and find books correlating to what they had just learned. I hope this is a partnership that continues for years to come!
