We would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to our clerk Hilary and her husband, AJ! They had a beautiful day almost as gorgeous as the bride. We wish them a lifetime of love and laughter together. Check out our Facebook page to see more pictures from their special day.
We are very excited to introduce a new weekly program coming to Brentwood Library—our very own makerspace! Kids and Teens are invited to come in every Tuesday after school to explore low-tech and high-tech gizmos and create their own projects using STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).
- Big Ideas Club (grade school kids): Every Tuesday, 3-4 p.m.
- Innovative Teens Club (middle and high school kids): Every Tuesday, 4-5 p.m.
Our makerspace clubs begin the September 6th. Stay tuned for additional STEM programs and events offered throughout the school year!
This project is supported in part by a federal by the Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Missouri State Library.
