1-5 Activity – Dr. Flake-N-Stein

We had our first Wednesday 1-5 Activity today at 2pm. It was absolutely magical! Brett Roberts as Dr. Flake-N-Stein, a mad scientist, showed kids some fun and easy science they can do at home. He also dazzled the crowd with a few magic tricks and song some songs with his robot buddies.


Check out the schedule to see what other programs we have this summer. And don’t forget to sign up for the reading club to get prizes and a reading certificate.


LEGOmania – Everything was Awesome!

A big thank you to the kids who came out today. We had a fun time learning about Pirates and building LEGO creations.
