Lots of Legos Equals Lots of Kids

Elgin Public Library held it’s first Lego League of the new school year on October 17, 2022.  Sixty-four (64) children were in attendance to experience lots of new Lego items.  New kits were purchased with a grant from the Bargain Box and several groups of students were kept busy trying to assemble them.  Others tried out our new Lego board while the rest enjoyed free building and making their own creations.  We were very excited to see so many students and look forward to seeing them at the next Lego League in November. We also encourage them to just stop in and check out some books or play with the many other makerspace items we have recently purchased.

Open House for Elementary Students

On Wednesday, October 12, and Thursday, October 13, Elgin Public Library held an Open House for elementary classes from St. Boniface and Elgin Public Elementary schools. Students in grades Kindergarten through 5th, along with their teachers, visited the library to hear about and look at the new books as well as the makerspace items the library has available for the children. Kim Young assisted with the open house. We look forward to having the students visit the library and check out some of our new books and play with the makerspace items.
