Spring into Storytime: Storytelling and Crafty Arts




Thanks to all the children who participated in our Spring into Storytime Crafts session last Friday. We had a great time and we hope everyone else did as well.

Keep an eye out for further sessions.



Abbeyleix Library LEGO club started on October 22nd 2016 with a Halloween themed event.

Since then we have had 45 different sessions with over 600 attendees creating their own little LEGO visions.

Here’s a sample of their work below. Click on the images for a closer look.

We’ve had some great fun since October,


But like all goods things, the LEGO Club must come to an end. Don’t fret, it will be back in time for a Halloween special.

The format will be changing but all those who have their names on the list, will still be on the list in October.

Thanks everyone for all the support and donations. And thanks to all the kids who have made it a joy to run the LEGO Club.

See you in October.
