“The Wonder Room” Opens at the Library
Was very excited to attend the grand opening of the Wallingford Public Library’s “Wonder Room” on Saturday, September 14, along with fellow Town Councilor and State Rep Craig Fishbein (pictured above). The project involved turning some open space in the rear of the children’s section into an interactive environment, promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) activities.
A lot to be proud of here, considering the speed with which this project came to fruition as well as how adaptable and multi-purpose it will be in the future. And while the focus is “STEM,” the hope is that the families and children who utilize the room will stay and check out everything else the Library has to offer, making it more of a “STEAM” experience (adding in “the Arts.”).
