Imagine Your Adventure with Dungeons & Dragons - Thursdays @ 3 pm
A Virtual Role Playing adventure game for kids aged 7-10
Participants will meet online each week and work together to create a story, guiding your characters through epic quests for treasure, battling dastardly foes and completing daring rescues. Every action in the game requires a role of the dice (building math skills!) and game play encourages problem solving, cooperation, communication and social growth. The number of players for this game is limited to maximize fun, so contact us now to sign up and reserve your spot! Your participation each week will earn you Book Bucks! No spaces left, sorry!
LEGO Club Creative Challenge - Mondays
Use the LEGO bricks from your summer reading kit to complete a new challenge in your summer-long story-telling adventure each week, and take a picture to share your creation with us on the Show & Tell tab. These LEGO bricks are yours to keep forever and each time you complete & share a creation for a weekly challenge you will earn Book Bucks! New challenges will be posted every Monday afternoon starting June 1st and ending July 13th.
