Kids like to create. They want to make something with their own hands. Their imagination is limitless and their creativity is mind-blowing. Combining the technology of today with the desire to create something of their own design, or by following step-by-step directions, is what Makers Club is all about.
The Leesburg Public Library invites youth, and their parents if the child is under the age of nine, to come to the Makers Club on Tuesdays from 4:00 p.m. until 4:45 p.m. Various solo activities and group projects will be set up, including Snap Circuits, Legos, Lego Mindstorms, paper plane design, and much more.
All ages are invited to make a themed craft every Thursday at 4:30 p.m. Themes include holidays, animals, and movies. Past crafts have included wind chimes, bird houses, and pool noodle light sabers. Ideal for youth ages 5 and up.

In addition to Minecraft, we game on PS4 and WiiU. We will also be exploring the world of Kodu. | There are ten laptops available for play, or you can bring your own if you have a personal Minecraft account. This program is for youth ages 7-14. Children under the age of nine must be accompanied by a caregiver at least 16 years of age in order to participate.
