Ages 1-10 years

We have received a grant of construction toys from the state. Every Friday beginning January 20th and running through May, the South Fayette Library will set out these materials so that young children can learn to build and create. Children under age 6 must have an adult in the room with them. Legos will also be provided for older children.

Since this is part of a grant, optional feedback surveys will be provided for parents and caregivers to fill out. The information collected by these surveys will help the state and national library associations determine the types of educational toys which are appropriate for libraries.

We will provide photo release forms for those parents/guardians who are willing to have their child photographed using the grant materials. We will not photograph children who do not have a signed release form on file.

No need to preregister!
