Block Party!

What can you build? A Block Party is an hour long free play session with a set of universal wooden blocks, people, vehicles, animals, scarves, photographs of buildings, and other materials where preschoolers have the freedom to build and play as they wish. Keva Planks and Legos will be incorporated as well.

There are only two rules:

  1. No throwing blocks
  2. No knocking down anyone else’s building

This free, family program is geared towards ages 3-5. No registration is required, but caregivers must stay and play with their child/children.

Questions? Call the library at 724-238-6451 and ask to speak to Mrs. Oates.
