Lego League

The Lego League met on April 24 with 28 children attending.  Each group drew a Lego challenge card.  Their task was to build whatever was on their challenge card.  Creations are on display at the library.  Stop by the library and some of the things you will see are robots, aliens, boats, airplanes, cars, houses, rockets, and gardens.

Making Quilt Blocks

On April 20, we hosted the final sewing class for the Girl Scouts.  Each girl made two quilt squares.  These squares will be made into a quilt by Jeane Johnson and Elaine Meyers.  It will be displayed at the library during the summer and raffled off in the fall.  

Twas the Night Before Easter

Twas the Night Before Easter and all through the preschool the children sat listening as a story was read.  On Tuesday, April 11 we visited the Elgin Public Preschool and read an Easter story, The Night Before Easter, by Natasha Wing followed by an Easter craft. The children enjoyed making their unique Easter egg bunnies.

Sew Happy!

 Sew Happy!!  That’s what the Brownie and Junior Girl Scouts were on April 6th.  Ten girls from troops 50294 and 50292 along with leader Abby Evans and co-leaders Rita Kirstine and Tori Durre came to the library to learn some sewing tips.  After learning different parts of the sewing machine the girls practiced sewing patterns on paper. They worked on controlling the speed of the foot pedal and feeding the paper through the machine.  During the next lesson they will use these skills to sew a simple project. We would like to thank Jeane Johnson and Elaine Meyers for helping.
