Parade of Legos

The theme for December Lego League was “Christmas Parade”. The kids were asked to create a float for the Christmas Lego parade. The floats will be on display through New Years and we are asking all visitors to the library to cast a vote for their favorite float. Below are the pictures of the floats that were created.

Storytime With Mrs. Claus

On Saturday, December 10, 2022 the Elgin Public Library hosted Mrs. Claus for our second annual Christmas story time. Twelve children enjoyed the stories read by Mrs. Claus, which included: The Three Bears’ Christmas, 5 More Sleeps ‘Til Christmas and The Christmas Selfie Contest. Along with the stories Mrs. Claus took the time to visit with the children and update them on how Santa is getting ready for Christmas.

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.
