Event Highlights

Well, thanks again for a great bunch that showed up for the Lego Club. This time I challenged them to creat a rocket ship to Mars (which might happen in 2018) OR create an underwater living area to help you survive. Our next meeting is July 18th at 3pm. That theme will be fantasy/mythological creatures. Put your thinking caps on, look up and read about some mythology, and come filled with ideas. Here are some photos from today.

Conifer's first ever LEGO club was held today with astonishing success. I'd like to thank everyone who participated, the parents that gave their time to bring and work with the kids, and the donations of LEGOs, Megablocks, and Duplos to encourage their creativity and imagination. Stop by the library and see these creations in the Conifer Library display case.

Painting a Story with Words

by: 
Bethany

Can writing really be compared to painting? You'd be surprised.

Novelist Elizabeth Wrenn, author of Around the Next Corner, will illustrate how writers make a myriad of choices on every page, and why. From the detail work of a stippling brush (word choice), to the broader strokes of large brushes (plot, character, dialogue, setting), to the frame surrounding it all (beginning, middle, end), writers must use all the tools in their kit.

This hands-on workshop, presented by 40 West Arts and the Lakewood Library, will share practical tips and techniques for more effective writing.

1 p.m. Sunday, June 9
