Here's where all the cool kids are...

It was a big week for Lego Club! We had 19 kids building today, with 9 Building Buddies doing freestyle building and 10 M & M Kids working in teams on machines and mechanisms. We may consider changing the date for October's building session, since the last Monday falls on Halloween. We'll post an update as soon as we know for sure, so watch this space for more info!

Lego Club today! Many thanks to Jen Odle for leading our new M & M group. Although we had a lively group of kids, 4th grade and up, for Machines and Mechanisms, there was just one child here for free-style building, and she built a very cool, magical something! Join us from 3:30 to 4:30pm, the last Monday of each month, for Lego Club!

The Paxton Carnegie Library Lego Club returns today!  The University of Illinois Extension will be joining us this year with some added activities for older youth.   Jen Odle, Ford County 4-H Program Coordinator, will be bringing in Lego Machine and Mechanism kits for youth in fourth grade and older.  These new Lego kits will get kids engaged in hands on activities with a partner learning about gears, mechanisms, and physics concepts such as force and motion; all while having fun playing with Legos! These kits were purchased with a grant from the Illinois 4-H Foundation.

While the older kids work on machines and mechanisms in the meeting room, those in Kindergarten through third grade can do freestyle building in the children’s library. Preschool children are welcome, with a parent. So mark your calendars for the last Monday of each month. Lego Club begins again today at the library, and continues throughout the school year. Building time is 3:30 to 4:30pm.
