What We Do

✨ STEAM Learning Activities

We create learning activities that libraries can use to host STEAM programs with their patrons. All activities are co-designed with MIT researchers and PLIX librarians.

🧘 Professional Development

We design professional development experiences that help library professionals cultivate a practice of creative learning facilitation.

💬 Community of Practice

We support a vibrant community of practice where library professionals can share experiences with PLIX activities, ask and answer questions, and reflect on their facilitation practice.

💻 Online Workshops

We host monthly online workshops and tinkering open hours that will give you the hands-on experience and training you need to get started with offering our PLIX activities in your library!
