Lego League

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.

Merry Christmas from the library!

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!
