Coding for Kids

Want to learn how to code? This kid-friendly class covers the basics of computer programming in a fun, game-like environment. Coders will learn new programming concepts while battling monsters and avoiding traps in CodeCombat.  It’s recommended that children under 10 have a parent attend.

What kind of ghost stories do you like best? The kind that makes you jump? The kind that makes you giggle? Whether you like spooky spirits or funny phantoms, come to Laura’s to hear some Halloween tales and write one of your own. It’s sure to be a brilliant BOOnanza!

Join us for a presentation of Mad Science!


Kids of all ages and writing abilities, learn how to create magical handwriting with the ancient art of calligraphy. By the end of this class you will be able to craft enchanting script!


Using warm, soapy water and some rubbing we will change orange wool roving into small pumpkins and then set them inside Burr Oak acorn tops. Or, wrap your orange wool ball with twine to create a tiny pumpkin. Hang them in the window or spread them across a table for decoration.

Come between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. and earn service hours for school by doing special projects at Laura's Library - stay for some of the time or all of the time.

No need to sign up in advance. Bring your parents’ contact information when you come. For teens ages 13-18.
