inquire within is an exciting new collaboration between WQED and neighborhood libraries. We are taking PBS resources out into the community to help kids between 3 and 11 learn new reading, math, and technology skills to help battle the Summer Slump! Join us!

Kids can't take their eyes off the video about Curious George and how he met the challens of sorting a bunch of puppies. The Curious Club program at the Plum Borough Community Library presents challenges such as working with patterns and sorting into groups for preschoolers.
