Your Guide to STEAM Month 2022

March is STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) Month, which means the library has programs all month long to entertain, educate and enthrall.

Make discoveries, create DIY circuits and try your hand at Shakespearean stage combat during STEAM Month. Whether Science, Technology, Engineering, Art or Math is your thing, the library has fun and informative programs for all interests. 

Beanstack Reading Challenge

Stack your to-be-read books high for our STEAM Month reading challenge. All ages can participate. 

Here’s how it works:

  • Mark each STEAM-related book read on the Beanstack app. If you do not have the Beanstack app, visit our Beanstack page for info.
  • Receive one entry per category (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). Participants can earn a total of five entries.
  • Enter for a chance to win two tickets to the Cincinnati Museum Center.

Need help finding a book that fits each category? Ask one of our librarians for suggestions! You can also browse our collection or use resources like Novelist to find titles.
