COMING SOON: The STEAM Garden
Ramsey County recently announced that they will be enhancing the Children’s Reading Garden. Families can currently relax and read on the benches provided, picnic at the tables, or play in the prairie area. In the summer, the library offers free summer meals for kids in the garden. New interactive elements will incorporate STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts and Math) concepts into the space.
