The "Drop-In LEGO Club" will meet on the following Wednesday afternoons from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM: March 4, April 1, and May 6.This monthly club is for children in Grades Kindergarten through Fifth Grade.

Children show what they built with LEGO bricks during the first meeting of the 'Drop-In LEGO Club.'No registration is required, but space is limited. When arriving at the Library, come to the Children’s Room and get a number. Numbers will be distributed starting at 3:00 PM the day of the program. Children will be accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis. The Library will provide LEGO bricks for children to build with during the program.

The "Drop-In LEGO Club" was made possible through the generosity of the Friends of the Garden City Public Library as well as through LEGO donations from library patrons. The Children’s Department would like to thank all those who generously donated LEGO bricks to the new "Drop-In LEGO Club." The Children’s Department greatly appreciates this donation, which will be used monthly during the LEGO club’s meetings and will help foster and encourage creativity in the children of Garden City who attend. If you have old LEGO bricks, minifigures, or other LEGO parts you would like to donate to the Library for the club, please contact the Children’s Department, either by or by phone at 516-742-8405 x216. LEGO donations can also be brought to the Children’s Room at the Library.

New Catalog Interface

E-mail Print

The classic ALIScat catalog will soon be supplanted by the new Encore interface.  We have updated the Main Menu link on the left sidebar to point to the Encore version.  Although the two currently coexist and library patrons can use either one, we recommend easing into the new look while there is still a fallback position.  Use the Encore catalog to search for books and other materials in the collection of the Garden City Public Library and other members of the Nassau Library System.
