Libraries are evolving with the digital age, replacing stacks of paper books with digital community spaces. PLUM LANDING, a digital project produced by WGBH for PBS KIDS', provides a unique opportunity for harnessing the opportunities libraries provide as a source of digital access as well as on-site STEM learning and community engagement. The PLUM LANDING web site is rich in STEM-and NGSS-based resources to help kids learn about the environment and inspire them to be caretakers of the planet. Hear how public libraries have incorporated the PLUM LANDING resources into their library programming for kids 6- to 9-years-old to create fun, engaging programs and events focused on environmental science learning, the use of digital technology, and an appreciation of nature. Brianne Keith, Outreach Manager with the WGBH Education Department and Rebecca Fox, Children's Librarian of the West End Branch of the Boston Public Library co-present.

  • Become familiar with the PLUM LANDING's web site and free resources
  • Know how libraries have incorporated the resources into their current programming
  • Be prepared to think of creative ways to introduce PLUM LANDING into their current programming, or create unique digital- and outdoor-based library events using the resources
