Public Libraries Are Teaming Up to Prepare Middle Schoolers for 21st Century Careers and Increase Access to STEM Learning Opportunities

The Urban Libraries Council convened leaders from 11 public library systems in Chicago on March 13-14 to kick off pilot programs designed to test new approaches to engaging low income middle school youth in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. These programs are extensions of ULC’s Partners for Middle School STEM initiative – a two-year project focused on building multi-sector community partnerships to increase STEM learning opportunities for underserved middle school students.
