You’ve heard of Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts – now the Key West Library is introducing Library Scouts, where kids can earn badges, have fun and learn about science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM).

The program is open to all kids ages 6 and up and will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month, starting in September. The library is at 700 Fleming St. in Key West.

The program will including experiments, crafts, books and more fun activities. Each meeting will focus on a new badge and include activities to earn that badge.

“We really wanted to focus on keeping kids engaged in arts, STEAM and literacy all year long, while also adding in a social component,” said Library Associate Patricia Blanco. She said she plans to bring in guest speakers from the community each month to tell kids about different careers.

“We want kids to try new things and help them find their passions,” she said.
