Seekonk Public Library Children’s Room


Legos: Build This or That!
Tuesday, October 4, 2 PM (early release day)
Join Detective Keith Perry for another great hour of Lego building with a spin, literally! For each round, we'll use the spinner to determine the two builds that will be a part of that round. Kids will choose which of the two they want to build for the round, sit with others doing the same build, wait for the countdown, then start! Sometimes a timer will be involved, other times there may be changing of seats or a surprise twist that's added to the build. A special early release day program for children ages 7+. Registration required. Join us!

Harry Potter Book Club
Tuesdays, October 4, 18, 25 & November 1
Join Ms Sandie virtually via Zoom for a Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone book club for grades 3-5! Participants will have the opportunity to practice reading aloud to the group, but it will not be required. We will conclude with a film screening of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone on Tuesday, November 8th at 5 PM in the library. (not virtual)
