PBS and public libraries are two of the most trusted sources by parents for the education and entertainment of early learners. After their parents, these institutions are children's first teachers by providing learning programs, resources and outreach.

WQED Multimedia is excited to launch a new, innovative initiative that marries these two fine institutions called Inquire Within. Through this collaboration, Inquire Within aspires to reimagine media-first partnerships that bear impactful outside-of-school time results in young children's learning.

We are excited to announce the launch of our first round of library partners in Allegheny, Washington, Greene, Fayette and Marshall Counties. These library partners will infuse their existing programs with PBS content, as well as add new and innovative STEM program offerings for their patrons.

You may be able to meet a beloved PBS character, attend a premiere of a PBS Kids movie event or explore code through PBS Kids Scratch Jr all at your local public library. Kickoff events at all of our library partners are coming soon, so make sure to check back for events you won't want to miss.

Inquire Within – unlocking imagination, creativity, and innovation – coming soon to a library near you!
