Creation Station: LEGO Club

Lego Club

Take a look at one of the original creations made by a young builder in our Creation Station: LEGO Club, our brick-building club for kids. The Library supplies the bricks, and the kids bring the ideas during free-building time with our LEGOs. They make new friends while building fantastic creations that we then display until the following month so kids can show them off to their families and friends. The program is for kids in grades K-4 (no younger siblings, please). Upcoming meeting dates are Tuesdays, January 28, February 25, March 25, and April 22. Registration is going on now for January. Separate registration is required for each month and begins two weeks before each program.
