Join Our Community Reading Group
Welcome to the STEAMREAD page where you will find everything you need to know about our community reading group. The goal of the group is to encourage discussion and continuing learning about science, technology, engineering, math and, yes, even the arts!
Our relaxed and idea-filled Wednesday evening meetings are anchored by a brief discussion of a selected book from these fields, with the aim of sharing our knowledge, broadening our expertise, and stimulating our questions.
Books may be purchased at The Voracious Reader, or checked out from your local library.
