Thank you to all the children and parents who participated in our first annual character pumpkin decorating contest. Also a big thank you to our judges who thought everyone did a fa-boo-lous job! Winners need to stop by the library to pick up their prize and pumpkins. We also encourage the public to stop by and see these creative characters in person!

Lego League Draws Another BIG Crowd

Lego League continues to be a spooktacular success!  Fifty one children attended the October 18th Lego League.  Their Halloween creations are on display at the library.   We would like to thank Kim Fangman and Shannon McClain for donating more legos to our collection.  In addition to the donations, more legos were purchased with a Thrivent grant.  We would also like to thank Sapp Brothers for donating the snack for the October Lego League.  If any Elgin businesses would be interested in donating snacks for upcoming Lego leagues please contact the library.
