FIRST Lego League coming soon!

Students age 11 to 14 are invited to join ACPL’s first ever FIRST Lego League (FLL) team.  What is FLL?  It’s a educational program and competition involving Mindstorms robotics in which students are challenged to think about and research a complex topic and come up with ideas for solutions.  This year’s challenge, announced just today in the above video, is Trash Trek.

Our team will be coached by engineers Dr. Martin Stern and Dr. Tim Loos.  The team will meet each Tuesday beginning September 8th from 4:00-6:00PM in Main Library Young Adults’ Services to learn about robotics, do research, and prepare for the competition.  Interested students: please call 421-1255 to sign up.  Space is limited.

Disc Golf at Hessen Cassel

The rain stopped, though the wet grass and mud puddles made for some interesting water hazards, on the first Hessen Cassel Disc Golf open. A six-hole course was set up around the front lawn of the library. Trees, signs, shrubbery and the aforementioned puddles made for course hazards. Much hilarity was heard as 6 golfers played the course.

Watch anime, enjoy snacks, and talk about anime and manga with other people who love it all as much as you do. Thanks to Crunchyroll, there’s always something new and fun to watch!

Last month the group viewed Love, Chunibyo, and Other Delusions–trailer above. That show is also available to check out at Main Library.   What show will be chosen next week?   Show up and you’ll have a say in the decision-making process.
