Libraries set STEAM, fitness programs

Print Article

This fall the Priest River and Blanchard libraries will host two new programs for kids eight and up.

Full STEAM Saturdays is funded by a generous grant from the Community Assistance League of Sandpoint and held in partnership with Kaniksu Technology. The goal of Full STEAM Saturdays is to expose kids and young adults in our community to science, technology, engineering, art and math programs that they may not otherwise have access to. Classes will be held once a month throughout the school year in both Priest River and Blanchard and will include sessions on computer deconstruction, coding, Snap Circuits and Makey Makey. The first class, Deconstruction Day, was held in Priest River and will be repeated at the Blanchard library on Saturday, Sept. 15 at 2 p.m.

Also new to the libraries is Food, Fun and Fitness for Kids, which will be presented by the University of Idaho Extension. Originally developed at Cornell University, this class is a hands on nutrition and food preparation class for 8 year olds and up. Topics include food preparation practices, decoding food labels, food groups and healthy breakfasts. Classes will be held the first and third Wednesdays of each month beginning Sept. 19.

Reservations are encouraged for both programs as space is limited. Contact the library at 208-448-2207 or library@westbonnerlibrary.org for more information or to sign up.
