In March 2017, more than 100 leaders from public libraries across Australia, Asia, Eastern and Western Europe and the Americas, gathered at the State Library of New South Wales (NSW) for STEAM into Sydney.
STEAM into Sydney celebrated the innovative ways that public libraries are supporting the science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics agenda. Presentations were ambitious, inspirational and demonstrated the kind of forward-thinking that has made public libraries such successful centres for lifelong learning in their communities. There were excellent examples of initiatives in Australia, as well as from around the world.
