Friends of the Library Plea

 Coming soon is the book sale which will be April 26, 2014.
We are asking those who have an interest in bringing donated books, to donate Adult fiction and Children books. The books are needed before the sale. This is the last sale before the summer reading program. The funds will be used to support the summer programs we have planned for all of our patrons.

Help out your local public library! Look into your personal book collection and choose your gently used books to donate. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
Do your spring cleaning and remember Northwest Branch Library!

LEGO Club Challenge 3

For this challenge we focused on  games.  We went back to the 12 by 12 plates, but this time we created a marble maze.  The maze could start from the outside and end on the outside or start from the outside and end in the middle.  Everyone got super creative and added bridges, arches, caves, jumps and more.  Next, everyone got a chess piece as inspiration to create that piece out of LEGO for our chess game board. The finished product was awesome!  We had a drawing for Lego movie posters and mini-figs and you can look forward to a similar drawing next time.  Come to our next meeting Saturday, February 22nd from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm we will build something awesome!

LEGO Club Challenge 2

Last Saturday was our second meeting and everyone's creativity was flowing into the art gallery challenge.  Everyone got a 12 inch by 12 inch plate and were asked to cover it with one layer of bricks to create a picture "drawn" using LEGO bricks. Then,  everyone drew their favorite LEGO mini figure with markers and we had a drawing for a  LEGO movie mini figure.  The drawings of the mini figures will be on display in the children nook if you would like to take a look.  If you were not at the last meeting try it at home and then come to our next meetings in February.  We will be meeting Saturday, February 8th and 22nd at 2:00pm or the LEGO gam
