Story Time (September – May)

‘Bots & Books (January – December)

3rd – 12th Grade

Using Lego Education WeDo 2.0 robotics kits, children will be building robots using Lego bricks and learning computer programming as they write code to make their robot complete tasks. Robotics programming opens the door to science and technology careers for children by sparking interest in STEM (science,

technology, engineering, and math) subjects. The library is a natural space for encouraging informal learning.

Breakout EDU (January – December)

3rd – 12th Grade

Breakout EDU is a unique game currently available at the library for students grades 3rd-12th once a month. We scatter clues/puzzles around the library that you must solve in order to figure out the combinations to all the locks on the Breakout Box within 45 minutes. Once you have removed all the locks you get to keep the prize(s) inside. This is an immersive learning game that covers a wide array of subjects, and it helps develop critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication skills.
