Pajama Time for youngsters and a LEGO contest for all ages

A new monthly Pajama Time storytime debuts next Tuesday, Nov. 17, from 6 to 6:30 p.m. for children ages 7 and under and their families. Little ones can come dressed in their PJs and bring their favorite snuggly toy. We will sing, dance and read our way to bed. This new program will take place every third Tuesday of the month.

Meanwhile, you need to turn in your entry for the LEGO contest for all ages this Saturday, Nov. 14, at LEGO Club at 10:30 a.m. and compete for one of several prizes. Entries must be built ahead of time.

Your LEGO creation cannot be larger than 18x18x18 (inches) and you must use your own LEGOs (or any brand of age-appropriate building blocks) — no sharing of pieces and no Technic or motorized pieces will be accepted. Entries must be your own creation, not a LEGO kit or a project found online or in a magazine.

Prizes will be awarded for each of five categories: preschool, ages 5-7, ages 8-11, ages 12-17 and adult (ages 18 and up). One prize will be awarded for a Judges’ Choice. Entries will be judged on general appearance and design, use of color, neatness and care of construction, and degree of difficulty.

Lifelong Learning lectures

The fifth lecture in our six-week free fall Lifelong Learning series takes place tonight, Thursday, Nov. 12, when Jimbo Buickerood will discuss “The 30-Year Controversy of the Village at Wolf Creek.”

The last lecture, on Nov. 19, will be from Rose Lynn, who will discuss “Barren of Human Rights: Touring North Korea,” which will dispel some myths you may have about North Korea.
