Van Buren Branch Library was one of 10 libraries in New Jersey selected to host a special bilingual story time program, begun in 2012 by the National Institute for Early Education Research at Rutgers University to bring high quality STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) activities to more people outside of school, especially young children and their families who speak Spanish.  The stories and activities in this program are linked to the New Jersey Department of Education Preschool Teaching and Learning Standards, and introduce math concepts such as counting, measuring, and patterns, and science concepts such as the senses, planting and growing, and form and function.
