STEAM Loan Kits

Adelaide City Library’s new STEAM Loan Kits supports community to access emerging technologies and innovative programs which encourage connection and collaboration.

As a key role to ensure community can access new technologies, the City of Adelaide provides learning opportunities that are practical and applicable to the real world in a fun and engaging way.
