Lego Club 7.24.13

 

Can you believe we only have two weeks left of the summer session of Lego Club as well as the Summer Reading Club?  Time sure flies when you're building Legos every week!  We continued to use "Dig Into Reading" as our inspiration for our challenge and spies was our theme for the week as they will stop at nothing when "digging" for the truth!  Check out all the spy gear, vehicles and hideouts created today:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next week, I will be on vacation, but never fear, Lego Club will still go on with one of the lovely librarians from the children's room!  I'll see everyone in two weeks for our LAST summer Lego Club session!

Lego Club - 7.17.13

 

We continued to use our Summer Reading Club theme of Dig Into Reading as inspiration for our lego building this week.  Construction was the challenge for lego clubbers and boy did they deliver with construction sites, vehicles, and even some of the structures that might be built on site!  Check them out below:

Summer

"Summertime, and the livin' is easy......," lyrics from the song Summertime.  George Gershwin, along with Ira Gershwin, composed the 1935 aria for the opera, Porgy and Bess.  

Just those few words emit a sense of "kicking back" and relaxing with a cool drink underneath a shady tree in the backyard when it is too hot to do the everyday chores.  I hope you are enjoying some time to relax and get away from it all.  Don't forget to include a good book while relaxing.  

Did you know that HTFL is now lending eReaders?  If you have been wrangling with the idea of purchasing a Nook or Kindle, drop in and check out one of the many we have available preloaded with book selections.  That way you can try before you buy.

Take time for yourself during this heat wave, come in to the Library and get cool, relax and let the good times roll!  Oh dear, I think I hear another song coming on :-)

Lego Club - 7.3.13

 

Today in Lego Club we started the Independence Day celebration a little early with patriotic themed creations.  Lego club members could create ANYTHING they wanted as long as it was red, white, or blue or some combination of those colors.  Check out what they made below and get in the spirit of the holiday!
