mecca family meccasaur

Every other Saturday, we're building with Meccano! Ages 12 and up can come into our meeting room from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM and build Meccasaur, a walking, roaring dinosaur. Construction is expected to take several weeks, but the doors are always open to newcomers who want to try it for themselves. Meccano focuses more on the physical builidng of the robot, and interested teens and twees can work together to build up their dinosaur from scratch. You'll also get to see past builds from our library, and see how they function. Upcoming dates are: October 21, November 4, and November 18.

Captain Jefferson Kidd is tasked with returning a young girl to her family, four years after she was abducted by Kiowa Indians.  The land is hostile, law and order random, and as if that weren't challenge enough, the girl's heart is still with her Kiowa family.  This National Book Award finalist, inspired by true accounts, is a western not to be missed by lovers of historical fiction.
