June LEGO Club!

Lego Club is continuing into the summer!

The LEGO Club is a place where children between the ages of 6 and 12 can make anything they choose. We provide the LEGOs, you provide the CREATIVITY! Feel free to design whatever you want, but if you need inspiration, challenge cards will be provided. Either working alone or in a group is allowed. The designs will then be put on display on the shelves outside the children’s room so you can show off your work.

This month, we will be meeting at the Dillsboro Public Library on June 1st at 5 pm and at the Aurora Public Library on June 13th at 5 pm. LEGOs, snacks, and beverages are provided. We can’t wait to see what you create!

Take It, Make It: Salt Dough

Beginning July 6, 2020, the third Take It, Make It activity will be available at both branches! Take It, Make It activities are projects that can be done at home with materials you can pick up at the library! You can also request curbside pick up. Just call 812-926-0646 (Aurora) or 812-954-4151 (Dillsboro) and let us know how many of the activities you need for your family!

This week’s activity is salt dough! Stop by either branch to pick up your bag of dough to take home! Follow these instructions to create a sculpture!

  1. If you wish, use food coloring to create different colored dough, or you can paint your sculpture once it is complete.
  2. Find a clean surface to work with your dough.
  3. Create your sculpture! Use cookie cutters, roll it out and make a rainbow, create an animal- let your imagination run wild!
  4. Once your sculpture is complete you can leave it to air dry (this will take up to a week), or have an adult dry your sculpture in the oven at 180° for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, the adult should tap the sculpture to make sure it doesn’t “yield” to touch. If it yields, it should be cooked longer.

If you want your creation to be featured on our social media, send a picture to Ms. Stephanie at stephanie@eapld.org. Make sure to include if we have permission to share your picture and name on our socials. Pictures must be submitted by July 18, 2020.

You can download and print the entire summer schedule here, or you can pick one up at either branch.

Don’t forget! There’s still time to get started on your summer reading log! If our patrons collectively read 1,500 books, one lucky patron gets to throw a pie in Ms. Stephanie’s face! You can find more information on reading logs and the pie contest here.
