Science Kit Grant & Open House

On Wednesday, February 15, the Roselle Public Library was visited by representatives of the the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers- Chicago Section (IEEE) who delivered the first installment of a $2000 grant to create a collection of circulating science kit as part of their ongoing “Science Kits for Public Libraries” initiative.

Representing IEEE were Norman Phoenix, grant distributions manager, and his colleague Connie Kelly, education chair, who participated in a grant check presentation ceremony during the library's Committee of the Whole Meeting. Representing the library were John Rimer, Young Adult Librarian, Christy Snyders, Circulation Department Manager, and Tami Mellert, Youth Services Assistant. In attendance were Samantha Millsap, Director of the Roselle Public Library, and the Roselle Public Library District Board of Trustees.

The kits are intended to promote STEM learning in the community of Roselle, and the contents of the kits, which include books, DVDs and interactive components, will help children and teens to explore concepts in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The kits will be introduced to the community during an Open House to be held at the library on Sunday, April 9, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., and available to check out the following day.
