    The Project Next Generation (PNG) grant is awarded by Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White to empower and educate students about the latest technology through positive role models and library based group projects. Beginning in fall 2019, the library will be hosting workshops and outreach events in conjunction with PNG. We're calling these workshops "Vision 2020". Join us for the first event, coming up in September, the NIU STEAM Exploration Lab! Click here for details.
