Children grades K - 5 have fun with LEGOs. Each meeting starts with a story based on the theme then crate something from LEGOs based on the theme. December's theme is "holiday hoopla." Meetings are held at all three library locations. Check the online calendar of events for meeting dates and times. 

Happy Holidays - see you at the library.
