Calling all kids! Schmaling’s after-school LEGO CLUB is starting up again!
When: Every Friday from 3:30pm to 4:30pm, September 7-November 16
Who: Geared toward 3rd – 8th grade students . . . but younger and older kids are welcome as well!
Every Friday, come 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.
Beginning September 4th and running through April, the Children’s Department invites all children preschool aged through second grade to attend a story time led by our very own Miss Gwen.
In addition, the last Tuesday of each month will feature activities with the library’s DUPLO Lego bricks!!
This event is anticipated to happen every Tuesday the library is open, from 6 to 6:30 pm; please see Happenings for exact dates. It is kindly expected that all children be accompanied to this event.
So wear pajamas, bring a favorite stuffed animal, enjoy the story, make a craft, and scarf a snack!
