THPL Lego Club
Wednesday, November 5th, 3:30 pm

Lego Club will be having three meetings this month on Wednesdays.

The library provides all the legos so that kids don’t need to worry about bringing any of their own. In fact, it might be best for kids to leave their own legos at home, so that they don’t get mixed in with everybody else’s.

The Lego club will involve special building challenges, where participants will be given a specific allotment of legos and time to build something really cool, then show off to fellow lego builders at the end.

So if you enjoy building cool lego stuff, and like to face a challenge, then this club is for you!

Cartooning with 321 Art Studio
Tuesday, November 4th, 6:00 pm

Cartooning! Do you love to doodle? Then take it to the next step! Local artists from the 321 Art Studio will guide young artists through the step-by-step process of using simple shapes to create characters, add facial expressions, and begin drawing a simple comic strip based on your imagination.

This family program is designed for students in grade K-6. However, younger kids will enjoy it with the help of a parent or grandparent while those older will enjoy the opportunity to learn basic drawing and get tips for practicing and completing their comic strip.

This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
