Lego Club: Every Friday After School!

Calling all kids!  Schmaling is starting a Lego Club!

When: Every Friday from 3:30pm to 4:30pm starting September 8th

Who: 3rd – 8th grade students . . . but all ages are welcome!

Every Friday after school, come and work a series of building challenges:  when you complete 5 you get a prize!  The time is open – so come for a few minutes, or stay the whole time.  However, the only time to complete the challenges is during the designated time, and participants will be using the library’s Legos only.  Pictures may be taken of the completed challenges and some may also be put on display.
