Evaluation
What were the goals/objectives of your program?: 
The goal of the program was to expose participants to other sections of the library they may not regularly use and potentially discover new, non-fiction reads based on the STEAM ideas (science, technology, engineering, art or mathematics.)
Highlights - what worked well?: 
Participants were excited to draw mazes and the game went over well with older participants.
