The Mattoon Library children's department is excitedly welcoming us back in and hosting a STEAM activity. In the past we have done an assortment of activities, challenges, and projects, including art within the realm of STEAM but have had a fun time no matter the category. We have separated ages and done combined activities as well depending on attendees and the activities planned. The library children's department heads this up with their own funding.

Smaller children are obviously welcome to play with the toys offered. Middle schoolers and older may be dropped off. We ask that children elementary and younger be accompanied by a parent. 

Please sign up for this event if you plan to attend, so that we can give the Library Staff an estimate of how many kids and what ages will be present and they can better prepare for the activities. 

Open to all homeschoolers

The library is following CDC mask guidelines. 

They are currently not requiring attendees to wear a mask but be aware these guidelines are subject to change at anytime.

If you have any questions, you may contact the
Children's Department
