ELIZABETH, NJ - Science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics – STEAM – programs at the Clark Public Library will benefit from a recently-awarded $7500 Union County Library Grant.
“We will be focusing on STEAM initiatives in support of creative technology education, increased access to technology and youth programming,” library Director Dawn Jenkin said.
In 2015, the library received a $4,000 grant that was used for early literacy, children’s ebooks and programming.
“We are very pleased to have received increased support from the Union County Freeholders, not only financially but with the recognition that elevates the profile of each library within its community,” Jenkin said.
Jenkin and children’s librarian Eileen Smith traveled to Elizabeth to accept the award.
