Today

  1. FIRST LEGO League Robotics Team Informational Meeting
    • Start time: 08:00pm
    • End date: Thursday, August 17th
    • End time: 09:00pm
    • Interested in joining Brimfield Public Library's new First LEGO League robotics team for students in 4th-7th grade? Come to our informational meeting on Thursday, August 17th from 7:00-8:00pm in the Activity Room - meet the coaches, Bryan Siegel and Jessica Higgs, get a copy of the practice and competition schedule, learn what being on the team entails, and fill out a team member application. Can't make the meeting? Fill out an application here: https://goo.gl/forms/tfmZpxvX5jF1AVrP2 Applications are due Thursday, August 17th by 7:45pm.

      FIRST limits FLL team size to ten members. In order to make selection of team members as fair as possible, the library will prioritize students who live in the Brimfield library district (same as the school district). We will then take students oldest to youngest.

      Can't commit to the FLL team schedule? Didn't get a spot on the team this year? Don't worry! The library will offer a series of less formal robotics and coding workshops throughout the school year.
