The Public Library Innovation Exchange (PLIX) develops creative STEAM learning experiences based on MIT Media Lab research and designed for the public library setting.


STEAM activities


Pick one of our creative learning activities and adapt it to the needs of your community. Everything is free and designed to be remixed.


Online Community


On our forum, library professionals share their experiences with PLIX activities, ask and answer questions, and reflect on facilitation techniques and practices.


PLIX Workshops


We host free, monthly online workshops and drop-in tinkering sessions where we cover everything you need to get started hosting a PLIX activity in your library.
