On December 20, we had 39 children attend Lego League. This month’s project was for each group to build something that would be found in a Christmas village. Below is an example of what you can see at the library. Stop by and check out our many other creations.
Elgin Public Library would like to thank Brenda Siems for donating treats for December’s Lego League. We really appreciate it.
Have you been out looking at Christmas lights yet? Elgin Public Library has put together a Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt. It is not a contest, just a fun way to admire all the Christmas displays in town. Stop by the library or Dean’s Market and pick up your scavenger hunt paper. Start a new family tradition and have fun!
We had eleven entries in our Book Character Pumpkin Decorating Contest. The pumpkins were judged and the winners are:

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 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.
The book for October is at the library. This month’s read will be And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini. Stop by and pick up your copy. There is one large print book available. Book Club will be held on Wednesday, October 27th.
