Teen Tech Week Continues with Bristle Bots

Teen Tech Week continues today with Bristle Bots, small robots made from a toothbrush. Learn simple engineering skills and then race the bots, winning prizes. You'll also customize the bots and take them home with you. For ages 12 and up. No registration is required. We'll start at 4:00 PM.

Teen Tech Week

Teen Tech Week 2016 LogoThis year’s Teen Tech Week is all about making! The rise of new technologies means kids can 3D print, repurpose, and craft from all kinds of materials. Knowledge of coding and technology is becoming more and more important, but so is problem-solving, creativity, and flexibility. 

On Tuesday, March 8, teens can use the LEGO WeDo kits to make their own bots. They’ll be given instructions to create a LEGO bot of their own, and they’ll use the WeDo software to program it. They’ll also get to play with Scratch, a programming language designed by MIT, to interface with the bots, allowing them to step into a broader field of programming.

The program starts at 4:00 PM and is for ages 12 and up. No registration is required for the events. For more information, contact Ellen at 281-890-2665.

Updates at the Northwest Branch Library

Library Parking Lot

We are happy to report the completion of some updates at the branch. Not only did the parking lot get some fresh paint, but an additional entrance from the lot to the park next door was installed. We're really enjoying the improvements and we hope you will as well. The next time you visit the library make sure you take a stroll on the new path leading to the park and enjoy one of these beautiful days we've been having.

What Color is Your Coloring Book?

Adults ColoringOur coloring for adults program has become extremely popular. Apparently not only is it meditative and relaxing, but it is quite the social event. Every other Friday customers have been filling up our teen area, but there's always more room! If you have been missing out, then you are more than welcome to join in. The next coloring session will take place on March 4, 2016 at 2:00 PM. Feel free to bring your own supplies if you wish, but we'll have plenty for you to use as well.
