The article discusses how STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education resources can be implemented in to public libraries and services for teenagers. The author notes that with an increased importance placed on STEM subjects, it is important for librarians to consider resources and programs for students beyond what they typically offer. The article lists suggested ways librarians can integrate STEM into public library work, including introducing STEM resources to students when visiting schools, promoting STEM programs to parents and educators, and creating STEM booklists.
