HILLSBOROUGH, NJ - The Somerset County Library System Hillsborough branch will host monthly meetings of the new Geeky Grown-Ups Group beginning Aug. 17.

The group is for fans of the many popular science fiction and fantasy topics, from Game of Thrones to Star Trek to Wonder Woman. The informal gatherings are an opportunity to share these interests with other local enthusiasts. The monthly meetings will begin at 6:30 p.m.

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. This monthly series will be incorporated into the adult services programming lineup starting in October.

Robodyssey's "Circuits on Paper", scheduled for Oct.9th, will feature creating a multi-colored greeting card for the upcoming holidays. The art and science of cooking will be demonstrated at the Nov. 8th "Freezing and Dehydrating" workshop. Adult attendees will participate by making a jar of jam to take home.

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!

For more information or to sign-up, call the Adult Services Desk at (908) 369-2200.
