Saturday, November 10, 10:30am – Noon

This month is the 1-year anniversary of BPL’s monthly LEGO Club! The traditional 1-year anniversary gift is something made of paper and the modern 1-year anniversary gift theme is clocks. Therefore our challenge will be to build a clock or something usually made of paper (books, deck of cards, or postage stamps, for example)!

 

 

 

Playaway® is the simplest way to listen to an audiobook.
Unlike CDs, audio cassettes or downloads, Playaway is a compact device much like an MP3 player.
Playaway comes pre-loaded and ready to use. Simply plug in earbuds or an auxiliary cable and enjoy.

 

Perfectly Portable: You can listen in the car, at the gym and everywhere
in-between. From NY Times bestsellers to
award-winning authors; we have the variety our community craves!

 

Simply visit the BPL catalog at http://bartlesville.polarislibrary.com, find the playaway for you and check it out like a book!
The checkout period is 14 days. You provide your own earbuds or auxiliary cables, or if you don’t have any,
we sell either earbuds or auxiliary cables for $2.00 each.

SIGN UP NOW for the Jr. Master Gardeners Club for kids ages 8-12! Space is limited. The Washington County Master Gardeners will be facilitating this Jr. Gardeners Club. The flower bed right outside the window in the Youth Services department will be cultivated and planted by this group. They will meet on four different Saturday mornings (June 9&23, July 7&21). To participate, you MUST pre-register by calling 918-338-4170. We can accept a maximum of 15 participants and they must be willing and able to commit to attending all or most of the four sessions.

Registration is underway at the Bartlesville Public Library’s Youth Services Department for the annual LEGO Creation Contest!
 
The contest is free, and participants will be divided into three age groups: Kindergarten through fourth grade, fifth grade through eighth grade, and ninth grade through adult.
 
First, second and third place winners will be awarded in each category with one overall grand prize being awarded. Winners will receive LEGO products and ribbons.
 
Contestants will build their LEGO creations at home using their own LEGOs, abiding by the rules and criteria noted on the registration form. They will then drop off their entries at the upstairs meeting room of the library between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 28.
 
The room will be closed at 11 a.m. to allow judging to take place. Judging the contest will be John Dunn of Ambler Architects, Eric Randall of Tri-County Tech and George Halkiades, retired engineer and facilitator of local FIRST Robotics Team 2165.
 
“We are extremely grateful to these professionals who are willing to lend their knowledge and expertise to the evaluation of the contest entries,” said Pryce. “Our judges each year bring a discerning eye and an enthusiastic attitude to the job.”
 
Public viewing will begin that same day at 1 p.m., with awards being presented soon after. Winning entries will be shown in the library’s lobby display case throughout the first week of May.
 
“Novices and experts are both welcome to participate,” said Pryce. “We encourage everyone to try and to be confident, no matter their skill level.”
To register, come by the Youth Services Desk at the Bartlesville Public Library, 600 S. Johnstone Ave. in downtown Bartlesville, or call 918-338-4170 for more information.
