HEY...LEGO my EGGO!

I'm starving and if you think you can just waltz in here and grab my Eggo when I have been waiting so patiently for the toaster to pop...you've got another thing coming buddy!

What? This isn't about my Eggo?

You said LEGO? As in the building blocks?

Oh, well that makes more sense...

So, no Eggo's at the library? Just LEGO's at the library? That could be fun!

LEGO Club has made a huge splash at your local Jefferson County Library, offering monthly programs for both kids and teens. All you need is a little imagination and some elbow grease, and we'll provide the rest.

Now back to my Eggo...where'd I put the syrup?

I never thought I would like the Hunger Games series at all! When my friend got me to watch for the first time, I fell in love with it right away! All the movies are great and I can't wait to see MockingJay when it comes out. I love all the actors and the story itself. I went to the last Hunger Games party, and enjoyed it a lot. I had many great expierences and met new people. I encourage any and everyone to go! It's a lot of fun! This year will be great too. Hope to see everyone there!

Getting Your Bike in Shape

by: 
Bethany

If you're like me, you have a bicycle. That bike may or may not have been used a total of zero times in the past few years. Is your bicycle gathering dust in the garage too? If you have a bike that you've been wanting to pull out, but are afraid of the TLC it might need, we've got you covered. An instructor from Denver's Salvagetti Bicycle Workshop will teach you how to keep your bike running smoothly, how to change tires, and how to stay safe. This free class will give you the skills and confidence to make it to your destination and back. For ages 14 and up.

Hello! It's Nice To Meet You (Again).

by: 
Bethany

Books. Everyone knows the library has them. Have you gone outside your comfort zone and tried all the other resources the library has to offer? We invite you to get Outside the Lines with us next week and try something new. We'll share how each day next week on Facebook and Twitter

Outside the Lines is a weeklong celebration, Sept. 14-20, demonstrating the creativity and innovation happening in libraries. Libraries across the country will be engaging with their communities in new and unexpected ways. Stay tuned for how you can participate. 

Tree Climbing for Grown-Ups

by: 
Bethany

Who said just because you're an adult you need to stop climbing trees? Not us, that's for sure! In fact, we'll have Harv "Ponderosa" Teitelbaum here to show you how much fun you can still have up in the branches! Harv is the owner of Tree Climbing Colorado and is also a master instructor in recreational tree climbing. He will give you an introduction to this fun activity. Actual tree climbing will not be taking place at the class, but it will give you a great foundation on what to look for.

For ages 12 and up. 

3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6
Lakewood Library
