"A new twist on learning."

The PIE Room is now open. Welcome to the Construction Zone!

The Play Imagine Experience (PIE) Room is a museum-inspired, immersive environment where children play and learn interactively. Located on the ground floor of the Waltham Public Library, each PIE is designed on a theme with a variety of activities, props, and toys that promote learning-based play. Each installation includes STEAM activity prompts, book lists, and music.
