If you love exploring, investigating, building and learning new things, then join us for stories, songs and plenty of science during National Science Week, from 11 to 19 August 2018.

Boroondara Libraries will hold STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) themed Preschool Storytimes at all branches.

If you can’t make one of our free sessions at the library, here is a list of our favourite STEM picture books for kids to share at home. We also have lots of STEM information books for kids, everything from coding to dinosaurs.

Ask the library staff to show you where to find them next time you are in the library; or you can access all the facts using our online subscription to Encyclopaedia Britannica Online from home, anytime.

To reserve a book click the title and use your membership number and PIN to place a reservation.Titles with an asterisk (*) are also available for free from our Overdrive ebook collection.
