Thanks to the generosity of the Donofrio family the Library has been able to offer an ongoing series of programs, workshops and events that aim to inspire young people, especially girls and minority students, to pursue science and engineering through school, college and beyond.
The Donofrio Technology: Inspiring Kids in Science series has also helped the Library receive several prestigious grants to develop other science related programs such as the International Year of Astronomy 2009 program and the Einstein's Big Idea program for which the Library won an Outstanding Library Service Award in 2005.
