Lego WeDo Robotics is Back!

Scjence Blog Steam Banner


Keep an eye out for some awesome LEGO workshops starting up in September! We’ll use LEGO WeDo equipment to build simple machines, and we’ll learn basic computer programming to make them move. It’s the perfect opportunity to learn some STEM skills in a really fun way.

Workshops will be presented in 3-week series based on kids’ grades, and registration will be required. We’ll hold multiple sessions throughout the fall, so lots of kids should get a chance to participate! Make sure you check our calendar to find out more, or stop in and talk to a librarian about it.

Authorfest 2016

This week was Authorfest! We were so excited to welcome Anna Alter to the library! She met with our Preschool Storytime Club as well as many of our friends from local preschools around town! We were all very interested to hear how she comes up with her stories and illustrations. We had a blast collaborating on a drawing with her. Check out some of the photos from our morning with Anna below...
