LEGO Builders Club

If you're a great Lego builder, or a first timer, this is the place for you!  Station Library Lego Club gives children the opportunity to get creative and build anything they choose with LOTS of Legos. They can either work on their own creations, or build as a team. The library will provide the Legos (and Duplo Blocks for the younger children), while the kids provide the imagination!  All materials must stay at the library, so bring a camera to capture your adventures.  Please leave your Legos at home.  We don't want you to lose your favorite pieces.  All children (and their parents) are welcome to attend this free club event.

Every Third Saturday of the Month from 11:00am-1:00pm.
(Unless otherwise noted.)

 

Piecemakers Craft Club

Open Sewing & Craft Sessions are designed to jumpstart your creativity and provide a place for adults to work on their own projects in a relaxed atmosphere while chatting, exchanging ideas, and sewing/crafting with friends.  Bring your quilting, sewing, knitting, cross-stitch, scrapbooking, or any other projects to work on.  Sewing machines, cutting mats, irons, and various supplies will be available on a first come, first served basis during this time, and experienced crafters and quilters will be on hand to provide assistance.

Every First and Third Monday of the Month from 9:00am-11:00am.
