Cornerstones: STEM @ Berkeley Public Library

Cornerstones of Stem Logo

At Berkeley Public Library, we believe that STEM is for everyone, that doing science can be fun, and that engaging in STEM is something we do every day. Check here for information on upcoming STEM programs and events at the Library and beyond. You will also be able to find book and electronic resources related to STEM topics. Berkeley is a center for science learning and technological innovation. As a community information provider, Berkeley Public Library recognizes its responsibility to offer STEM information and resources, and aims to emphasize that commitment through the Cornerstones initiative.

Cornerstones: STEM at Berkeley Public Library is a partnership between Berkeley Public Library, Berkeley Public Library Foundation, and Cornerstones of Science. Cornerstones of Science is a national organization that provides libraries with the tools and support they need to engage people in experiential learning, reawakening a sense of wonder about the natural and physical world.

Cornerstones: STEM @ Berkeley Public Library is made possible in part by the support of the Stephen M. Silberstein Foundation and the Berkeley Public Library Foundation. Additional funding for programs is provided by Friends of Berkeley Public Library.
