Family Playspace & Lego Club

   The Library’s Community Room will be open for families to play on Saturday, April 8 from 1pm-3pm.  We’ll have different stations set up so the kids can choose what they’d like to do: LEGOs, Blocks, puzzles, toys, coloring, big LEGOs (DUPLO), and board games.  All ages are welcome!

   Challenge: A LEGO person who lives in the United States wants to visit his LEGO friend in England. To get across the ocean that separates the U.S. and England, the LEGO person can only drive. Challenge students to build a bridge that is strong and sturdy so no LEGO people fall into the ocean.

    A Plague of Doves  by Louise Erdrich

    Doves

     

    Though generations have passed, the town of Pluto continues to be haunted by the murder of a farm family. Evelina Harp—part Ojibwe, part white—is an ambitious young girl whose grandfather, a repository of family and tribal history, harbors knowledge of the violent past. And Judge Antone Bazil Coutts, who bears witness, understands the weight of historical injustice better than anyone. Through the distinct and winning voices of three unforgettable narrators, the collective stories of two interwoven communities ultimately come together to reveal a final wrenching truth. – Amazon.com
