Lego Club at the Marion Public Library

Several months ago a generous donor gave thousands of dollars of LEGO kits to the Marion Public Library (MPL).  The creative library gals have been planning what they can do with the donation, and the first ever LEGO CLUB (Kindergarten - 6th Graders) has sprung out of the donation!

One day each month this summer (either a Monday or a Saturday), the MPL is hosting a LEGO club.  Among other things, kids will:
-build their own LEGO creation
 -have their picture taken with their LEGO creation
-have their creation displayed at the library
-sign-up to receive LEGO club magazine

-build a new creation each month
-have the chance to win a LEGO kit each month

You must SIGN-UP ahead of time to reserve your spot for this fun summer activity.

Head to the Marion Public Library and sign up for one day each month.

June - Mon, June 3 from 3-4pm OR Sat, June 8 from 11-12pm
July - Mon, July 8 from3-4pm OR Sat, July 6 from 11-12pm
August - Sat, Aug 3rd from 11-12pm OR Mon, Aug 5 from 3-4pm

First Fridays Begin Friday, May 3, 2013 (Main Street Marion)

Sorry for my hiatus from postings... life has been a wee crazy - looking forward to the summer and ready to shift gears a bit!  A great way to start of the summer is Main Street Marion's FIRST FRIDAY!  These events are the first Friday of every month, starting this week (Friday, May 3) through September. 

If you haven't been to these, they're essentially downtown carnivals/festivals.  Usually rides, street vendors, local organizations.  Take some cash, as there is a charge for food & rides, and a stroller/some good walking shoes.  There is usually some kind of free entertainment that is a lot of fun! 

Main Street Marion’s First Friday

Hosted by Main Street Marion, featuring live entertainment, artisans, crafts and children’s activities.  Join the fun at the Riverfront District.  Contact Main Street Marion for additional information at 765-662-1192 or visit Main Street Marion’s website.
