Introducing… S.T.E.A.M. ON!

Introducing a fun, challenging, and educational new program! S.T.E.A.M. ON! will focus on the important science, technology, engineering, art, and math skills to get your child thinking outside the box, or maybe even inside if needed! With two age groups to choose from, your child can gain hands on experience, learn critical thinking, make new friends, and have fun along the way.

Our S.T.E.A.M. ON! for children ages 6-11 years old will be featured the FIRST Wednesday of each month at 10am. S.T.E.A.M. ON! for ages 12-17 years old will be held on the THIRD Wednesday of each month at 10am. Registration will be required for each lesson, so keep an eye on the online calendar and our Facebook page for updated registration links.

Driver Training

 

The Webster County Library has partnered with Driving-Tests.org, a company dedicated to driver safety and education, to offer free Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) practice tests to library patrons, starting on 27 March 2018. The practice tests are based on the state’s actual DMV materials.

The creators of Driving-Tests.org have emphasized availability and accessibility to help new drivers study state manuals and take driving practice tests. Partnership with Driving-Tests.org allows the us to harness the power of Driving-Tests.org’s specialized practice exams to turn new drivers into safer drivers.
