Even preschoolers are invited to build and explore in the library’s TinkerLab, featuring child-directed projects, art-making prompts, and creative inspiration that values hands-on making and occasional rule breaking. TinkerLab will be available at different times during the month – check the library calendar online at http://www.slcolibrary.org/gl/glal/libraryWhitmore.htm.

In addition to these science and tech programs, many of the cornerstone library programs will begin again including the Great Reads book clubs and preschool and toddler age-specific story times.
