Community members will have the opportunity to get their creative STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) going with a new programming initiative at the Hillsborough Branch - STEAM for Adults.

Hillsborough sends a shout out in December to ugly sweater fans with an art program planned to create their own. On Dec. 13th adult patrons are invited to build a website on Wix, a cloud based web building platform.  

By the holidays, adult patrons will be ready with a card, a gift of jam, an ugly sweater to wear, and a website to share with their online community - all created with their newly developed STEAM skills!
