About Beth Crist and Anne Holland
Beth Crist, Youth & Family Services Consultant at the Colorado State Library, is an advocate for STEAM programming in libraries for all ages of patrons, and for collaborating widely with a diverse array of community partners. Not from a STEAM background, she loves learning more about it and how and why to incorporate more STEAM programming for all ages into the regular library lineup.
Anne Holland, Exhibits and Outreach Manager for the Space Science Institute in Boulder, CO, is a big advocate for libraries and librarians. Her favorite part of her job is helping librarians find easy and cheap activities to do with their patrons, and convincing them that they’re more than capable of doing STEM in their libraries. And with a Master’s degree in space science, she’s very well suited for the task!
