3D Design Contest
We're starting a 3D design contest for all ages. Use tools like Tinkercad or Blender to design your own 3D creation in each month's theme. Then submit a flash drive or email email@example.com with a .stl file of your creation along with your name, age group, phone number, and the title of your design by the third Friday of each month. A winner from each age group will be chosen to have their design printed for free!
November's theme is Robots! The submission deadline is 5:00pm Friday, November 20.
Virtual Escape Room
Book Club meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm or the fourth Friday of each month at 10:00am. Looking for a group that shares your love of reading? Each month, our book club reads a book, and meets to hold a discussion inspired by what they read. Even if you don't get a chance to read the entire book, we encourage you to come join in the lively discussions. Both sessions read the same book, so it's a matter of which one works best for you. The book club books are available for checkout from the library. An archive of past book club books is available here.
