We had wonderful group here in the branch on Tuesday March 11th for the most recent LEGO Mania program. There were a total of 18 persons building, designing, and admiring the fantastic creations.Tabre Constantinescu was the draw prize winner of the LEGO minifigure. Congratulations to Tabre and her fantastic assistants!

Kids of all ages are encouraged to attend this special program. It is a great way for parents (especially Dads and Granddads) to spend some time with kids doing something fun and creative. A prize draw will be held at each program. Please register ahead of time so staff know how many kids to expect. All kids should have an adult helper to assist and supervise. Please note that staff are not able to supervise children closely during this program as the library is also open to the general public.

 

All LEGO building materials are provided by the library - so please leave your own at home!


Next Book Club Meeting: Wednesday April 30th at 7pm

Join us at the library for discussion of the title(s) listed below. This is an open group and we are always happy to see new members at our meetings. We generally do not engage in "lofty" discussions about the books- but instead explore some of the interesting ideas or themes inside the stories...our main goal is to try reading a bit out of our own comfort zones and maybe come across some books we might never have thought to read! For more information about the group or if you would be interested in joining us please contact Diana at the Falkland branch.

 Currently Reading: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.

The current titles may be available at the branch. Please speak with staff.

Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter

For those that missed the last meeting we discussed Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter. The story focuses on the lives of several characters in present day and the early 1960's in both Hollywood and Italy. As the story unfolds the characters lives intersect and connections between them are revealed. It is a sad, humorous, heart-wrenching, and yet hopeful story. Generally we all liked it!
