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.

Why is Mama making noise?
This is a truly funny take on a childhood chore that all children will relate to and laugh at! And it is sure to be helpful to get kids cleaning up!

This was our last story time for the summer. We would like to thank all those who attended.
