Our Lego Clubs start up again this weekend with Lego Creator Club on Friday September 12th from 3:45-4:30 (for kids in 1st through 5th grade) and Jr. Lego Club on Saturday September 27th from 11:00-11:30 am (for kids ages 4-7).

We have one iPad for use with these sets, but if you load the app onto your tablet or phone, then you can also play and interact with the sets.

Only the three sets we purchased were available when we ordered, but if we get a positive response, we will also go right ahead and order the fourth set that covers the popular Lego Friends theme. Just let us know your interest.

The WJ Niederkorn Library will be participating in the International Big Library Read Program

Library card holders will be able to borrow and read a digital mystery eBook called A Pedigree to Die For, Book 1 of the Melanie Travis Mystery Series by Laurien Berenson.

{9e44e636-b6e3-4197-9d47-dc645c72bcb9}Img400Decription: The apparent heart attack that killed kennel owner Max Turnbull has left seven pups in mourning, and his wife Peg suspecting foul play. But the only evidence is their missing prize pooch—a pedigreed poodle named Beau. Enter Melanie Travis. With her young son happily ensconced in day damp, the thirty-something teacher and single mother is talked into investigating her uncle’s death—unofficially, of course. Posing as a poodle breeder in search of the perfect stud, Melanie hounds Connecticut’s elite canine competitions, and finds an ally in fellow breeder Sam Driver. But her affection cools when she’s put on the scent of Sam’s questionable past…and hot on the trail of a poodle-hating neighbor and one elusive murderer who isn’t ready to come to heel. For, as Melanie soon discovers, in a championship dog-eat-dog world, the instinct for survival, and winning, can prove fatal.In A Pedigree to Die For the mysterious death of a kennel owner draws in Melanie Travis into the world of pups, pooches and poodles all vying for the best in breed. Will Melanie find a beau or just Beau this summer? Find out in this pleasant summer read. If you enjoy this book, well good news, there are 15 other books in the series.

The Big Library Read program is made possible through a partnership between OverDrive, the leading supplier of eBooks and more to libraries, and Kensington Publishing Corp., publisher of Laurien Berenson’s unusual and fascinating mystery.
