He will talk about Lego’s a little bit and then there will be two programs the children will get to participate in. The first program will be Towering Heights. The kids are given a certain amount of time to build the tallest tower possible. The tower has to incorporate creativity and has to be able to stand on its own. Kids can work alone or in teams. The tallest tower built to date in a workshop has been 7 feet tall! The second one is American Ninja Brick Warrior. A team building exercise designed for the 2016 Summer Reading Program where kids work together to build an obstacle course for the LEGO people to get through.
The Lego Guy is being sponsored by the Friends of the Ortonville Public Library.
Parents may also sign their children up for the Summer Reading Program that afternoon too.
FROM YOUR HEAD LIBRARIAN: Effective May 1, 2016 a change will be coming to Pioneerland Library System. The change is going to affect those patrons who are a resident of another County outside of Pioneerland who use the Ortonville Public Library. Before May 1 (if possible) you will need to go to a library within the library system in which you live and get a library card if you do not already have one. In the State of MN, you are to have a library card from the library system in which you reside. This will include all vacationers who stay at the lake during the summer. You will need your library card from your home library system in order to use the Ortonville Public Library. This change will not affect those residents who live in Grant County, SD. All of this is coming about because of new changes with the changes in Overdrive eBooks and eventually MnLink. If you have any questions about the new change, please give me a call in Ortonville at 320-839-2494 and I will be glad to explain to you why this needs to be done. Vicki Bartz, Head Librarian
