Great Programs for Kids, Tweens & Teens Include Birds, Pajamas, Catapults, Sculptures & LEGO

Posted on January 19, 2023 at 4:30 am

People of all ages and families can enjoy the Community Art Show and build with LEGO bricks and large foam blocks. The Great Backyard Bird Count is a great way for everyone to contribute to this worldwide community science event.

Young readers have fun hearing stories and playing during our storytimes. Don’t forget to sign up for Online Pajama Storytime for some at-home stories with our librarians.

Kids in elementary school can explore how electronics and machines are made during Take It Apart, create a story with LEGO, and build a marble roller coaster during Science in Spanish.

Tweens explore different STEM concepts, including wind, light and shadow, catapults and KEVA planks, and robots and when they create stop-motion movies with LEGO.

Teens are working on a community project for the leadership council and can create wire sculptures and tub teas. Explore the magic of using a green screen for family videos.
