Paper engineering, Dungeons and Dragons at the Mattapoisett Library

Jan 30, 2021

The Mattapoisett Library is announcing a new project for February in its STEAM Project To Go series: paper engineering.

This engineering project involves using math and physical and life sciences to convert raw materials — like paper — into useful structures.

Young people grades 6-12 will create a paper structure that can hold weight. A list of extension projects will also inspire teens to take it one step further.

STEAM Projects To Go are created for busy teens who still want to engage with library programming and their community. 

Each Project To Go includes supplies needed for the project, instructions, information about the theme, a library book related to the theme, and ideas for more projects.

Those interested in getting a STEAM to go project can register on the calendar at the library's website ( or by calling the library any time between now and the end of February. 

Once registered, participants will be contacted to arrange pick up (library card required). If there are no spots left, there will be a waiting list.

This month the library is also continuing to offer Dungeons and Dragons on Zoom, recommended for patrons ages 12 and up.

New players are always welcome. Participants will be unraveling the mysteries at River’s Corner from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 6 and Saturday, Feb. 20. 

Those interested in joining can sign up for both or one of those dates by visiting the library’s website ( or calling the library for more information.

All library programs are free and open to the public.
