Smyrna Public Library Awarded $2,000 Grant

The Smyrna Public Library recently received a $2,000 grant from Gas South to support STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) resources in the collection. The grant allowed the library to purchase more than 75 new STEM-related titles for Youth Services and created 15 new MAKER BOXES. Each box contains a book on a STEM topic and a related hands-on activity. These boxes may be checked out from the Youth Services Desk and used in Smyrna Library.  

The Bright Side featured the grant in a December edition article.  Youth Services Librarian Rebecca Power, left, and Smyrna Library Director Mary Wallace Moore display some of the new Maker Boxes in the article photo.

Thanks to Gas South and The Bright Side for their support of the Smyrna Public Library.
