This week we set our painted lady butterflies free into the open air!! Thank you to the sweet kid patrons of LMFL, and extra special thanks to our dear Jessica Davis for organizing and overseeing the growth of these magical little bugs. For more pictures, check us out on Instagram!!

& of course happy spring, everyone, even on this dreary drizzly Friday… πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸŒ·πŸŒ·πŸŒ§οΈ

LMFL Now on Instagram! + Scenes from LEGO Club

We had another super successful LEGO Club yesterday afternoon, and between the sounds of LEGO blocks shuffling around in boxes and children laughing and books being checked in and out, it felt more like a party than regular programming! Which we guess is a good thing?

LEGO Club is always so much fun β€” don’t forget to mark your calendars for next month’s LEGO Club meeting, Thursday May 5th, from 3:30-4:30pm.

In other / related news, Livingston Manor Free Library is now on Instagram!! Check us out and follow our account for more updates, news, and upcoming events. Springtime is looking good here at LMFL, and we can’t wait to share more with you via everyone’s favorite image-based platform.

Now we’re just waiting for the tulips and the daffodils to bloom…….

Butterflies at the Library

Something’s aflutter at Livingston Manor Free Library….. or something will be fluttering soon enough, anyway! Come check out our five fuzzy caterpillar friends as they grow and develop over the next couple of weeks into beautiful Painted Lady butterflies!

We’ve even named them. πŸ™‚
Everyone, meet Poe, Carle, Emily, Robert, and MacIntyre!
so many good books on butterflies for spring!

LEGO Club Goes to the Circus!

We had a blast at LEGO Club yesterday β€” the theme was “At the Circus” and our Library’s clever kids built some truly imaginative pieces…

Check out this (incredibly accurate) catapult!
Horses jumping through rings of fire! Tightrope walkers! Stunts of all kinds!
A high-wire act and a human canon!
Such balance! Such bravery! Such grace!

Thanks for joining us! We’ll see you again at the next LEGO Club meeting, Thursday, April 7th at 3:30pm here at the Library. We bring the LEGOs, YOU bring your great ideas. 😊
