STEM Carts Donated to Area Libraries

Libraries in 47 communities, including a few in the area, have been awarded equipment to help children develop skills in science, technology, engineering, and math.

The libraries were given STEM carts thanks to the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation as part of its Henry’s Heroes Program. The carts include a variety of STEM toys and kits that encourage organic and structured play grounded in science, technology, engineering, and math concepts. Iowa Select Farms employees nominated their hometown libraries to receive the carts to empower kids to be future innovators, creators, and leaders.

Libraries that received STEM carts include the Early Public Library, Newell Library, Rembrandt Public Library, Rockwell City Public Library, and Stubbs Memorial Library in Holstein.

Iowa consistently ranks in the top five states for its number of public libraries. The 543 public libraries across Iowa serve as free, trusted, and welcoming gathering places that support children, families, and communities.
