Who remembers the old fashioned fall hay rack rides. Elgin Public Library decided to celebrate Halloween by inviting Kindergarten through 3rd grade students to join them on a hay rack ride around town. Thirty children participated in the festivities. Following the hay rack ride they returned to the library to play games, decorate pumpkins, listen to stories and enjoy Halloween treats provided by the Library Board. We would like to thank Myranda Palmer, Jordan Lingren, Olivia Lingren, Joey Getzfred and Theanna Dunn from Elgin High School and Lauren Seier (and Buddy) and Wenting Yu from Pope John High School for helping with the activities. A special thanks to Jerry and Kyle Pelster for the fun hay rack ride.
Lego League will be held Monday, October 16, from 4:00 to 5:00. Hope to see you there.
Lego League began on September 18 with 19 students attending. They spent the hour free building. There were lots of interesting creations. Stop by the library to see what they made. The next date of Lego League will be posted on our website.
