(BLOOMFIELD) - Bloomfield-Eastern Greene County Public Library announced it has received a $3,500 National Science Foundation grant from the Califa Library Group to provide science-based programs for adults.

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) are popular topics for children's education, but rarely mentioned in relation to adults.

The Greene County Daily World reports that programs funded by the grant are essentially "book club meets science cafe." Attendees read a pre-announced popular book selection, then to come to the library for an event in which they discuss the book, and then watch and discuss a short human interest video where scientific ideas touched on in the book intersect everyday life.

Rural Gateways is funded through the National Science Foundation and was created through a collaboration of Dartmouth College, The Califa Library Group, the Association of Rural and Small Libraries, Dawson Media Group, and the Institute for Learning Innovation.
