Trina from Harmony Station came to the library this morning and did some wonderful storytelling through songs. Her CD Ladybug’s Garden is now available at the ORL.
We had another exciting LEGO Club this week. There were many creative creations, but I must admit that I was especially impressed by the spinning top and LEGO car ramp built by a few of the older boys. Great building everyone!!
(Video footage of the spinning top and car ramp in action failed to load. Sorry, guys.)
December LEGO Club was a blast! We didn’t really stick with the Winter Wonderland theme, but that’s the joy of free-building. You can go where your imagination takes you.
Next LEGO Club will be on Thursday, January 26 at 3:30. Registration will open on January 12.
LEGO Club is for ages 5-12. Next time we meet is:
December 8 Theme: Winter Wonderland
Registration begins November 24, 2016, click HERE to register.
November’s gathering was a lot of fun. Not only did we have LEGO, but we also got to play with KEVA planks. Thanks Science World for donating the planks to the ORL!
November’s theme was I Remember. See if you can find creations that followed the theme.
And here are pictures from our September (Pirates & Desert Islands) and October (Zombie Thanksgiving) gatherings.
This hilarious club is for ages 9-14 and is at 3:30 on the first Thursday of each month from October through December.
Here’s how the club works… Everyone gets a chance to share a book in 30 seconds or less. If the timer goes before the speaker finishes talking, we all get to throw a marshmallow at the speaker. After the book sharing and marshmallow throwing/eating, we play fun games like Quelf and Minute-To-Win-It.
Our final program for the fall is:
December 1- Registration begins November 17, 2016, click HERE to register.
