The Design It! program, which offers children the opportunity to create projects based on different themes, has expanded this school year into Build It Wednesdays. Each session we use open-ended projects encouraging children to use their imaginations as they build creative thinking and problem solving skills.
Build It Wednesdays take place on Wednesday afternoons in Children’s Services at the Main Library from 3:30pm-4:30pm.
The first Wednesday of each month is Construction Zone. During Construction Zone, kids are able to build almost anything they can imagine using a variety of materials such as K’Nex, gears, straws and connectors, Brain Flakes, magnetic tiles, Mega Blocks and even plastic cups.
The second and fourth Wednesday of each month are when we offer our Design It! program. The theme changes each time. Please check the schedule listed below for themes through the remainder of the year.
The third Wednesday of each month is Block Play! This is a great time for kids to come build with our big blue blocks and our Keva planks.
