Every Saturday, we clear out the conference room to make room for our giant collection of Lego bricks! Legos at the Library is open to all children, boys and girls, that want to turn their creativity into something they can design and then build. Parents are welcome to get involved to build something amazing with their child. The best part is that the library requires shoes, so you can't step on a lego brick with your bare feet! Legos at the Library is a chance for children to learn fine motor skills and problem solving, express their creativity and use their imaginations, and learn to share or even collaborate with others. Be sure to join us every Saturday from 1-4pm in the second floor Conference Room. For more information, contact the Youth Services department at 270-442-2510 x122.

Baby and Me is a special story time for babies 0-2 years of age. The class is 20 minutes long and meets after Story Time on Tuesdays at 11 AM. One child and one caregiver will join Miss Katie in singing songs, finger-playing, and introducing babies to stories and books.

The group style setting of the class is great for baby socialization and meeting new families. No registration is required. For more information, contact Katie in the Youth Services department at 270-442-2510 x122.
