BPL Receives SD Community Foundation Grant

The Brookings Public Library recently received a $2000 grant from the South Dakota Community Foundation to increase access to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) concepts through the purchase of telescopes and the addition of astronomy programming during the 2019 Summer Reading Program. Telescope kits and programming will be developed through a partnership with South Dakota State University faculty Dr. Judy Vondruska. Telescope kits will be available for checkout and come with instructional videos, telescope accessories, and a related book.
