Today was our third LEGO Club and once again a huge crowd of LEGO fans showed up. Thank you to all the participants and parents. I see that LEGOS are becoming popular with the moms and dads who show up too. They just can't resist creating something alongside the kids. Good for them!! I am currently working on keeping this going for the whole year. I gave out fliers with possible times and days for LEGO Club during the school year. If you were not able to attend, but would like to fill one out, please see me at the Conifer Library.

As a kickoff to our Dig Into Reading Summer Reading Club, a few employees of Jefferson County Open Space brought their very own backhoe to the Golden Library on May 31st!

The backhoe’s bucket was decked out with a display of books and kids got to climb in and out of the seat where the operator sits!  Open Space employees presented information about the kinds of things backhoes are used for and answered questions.

Eight very talented kids wowed the crowd at the 1st Annual Columbine Library Talent Show on Monday the 24th.  The audience was treated to a variety of talents including a martial arts demonstration, choreographed dance routines, guitar-playing and some fantastic singing.  We hope to make this an annual event, so start practicing your act for next year, now!

To catch the next fun event at your library, check out our Event Calendar today.

We will be showing the proper and safe way to handle different reptiles and almost all of them are able to be touched by those curious enough.  As a rescue, Canyon Critters will also discuss responsible pet ownership and mistakes people make when choosing pets.

Please note that some shows require tickets.  Tickets are available beginning a week before the show date and can be obtained online in our Events Calendar, by phone at 303-235-5275, or in-person.

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.
