Our Library is a place to Do Stuff!

Next time you walk in the library, check out the lego constructions on the glass case. The kids in the Lego Club are very creative in how they interpret the construction prompts. One night the theme was towers - and someone created a Leaning Tower of Pizza - it had a pepperoni pizza on top of it. At other times there have been gardens, mazes, and spaceships.

It's just kid play, right? And yet - fiddling around with those little plastic blocks allows a kid to explore math, engineering, design and art, imagination. Lego club is on Tuesday evenings from 5-7.

Painters and artists of all ages have been enjoying the diversity of art workshops. Last week kids and adults painted black cats (perfect for Halloween). This Sunday, the 21st, there's another art workshop happening in the basement. If you feel like your creativity needs a boost - drop by and pick up a paintbrush and play around. You're sure to go home happier. The Sunday art class starts at 1 pm.

And remember to check out the art and craft supplies in the Maker Space. With paper, glue, and a bit of this-and-that you have everything you need to create some fun masks for Halloween and Day of the Dead.
