LEGO Robotics!

Lego PileTeens, there's no better way to come off the 4th of July weekend than to join us for some LEGO building. But wait, there is. Join us for some LEGO ROBOT building! That's right with LEGO's WeDo kits you not build things, but you tell them what to do too!

So join us Tuesday, July 5, at 4:00 PM for our free LEGO WeDo robotics workshop. It's a great opportunity to learn some engineering, creativity, and teamwork.

The library would like to thank the American Association of University Women (AAUW) for donating the WeDo kits. For years they have been a generous supporter of the library.
