Introducing Ideaspace!

Ideaspace is a new project by the Public Library of Brookline that’s designed to make Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) accessible and engaging to everyone in our community through classes, clubs, technology, and tools. We're thrilled to present our calendar of fall programs for all ages. Check out our Fall 2019 Program Guide here, and learn more about Ideaspace here. We hope to see you at one of our events!

Ideaspace is generously funded by the Brookline Library Foundation and brought to you with federal funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
