FIRST Robotics
In 2017 the Brimfield Public Library sucessfully started a FIRST Lego League robotics team for students in grades 4-7. We are hoping to start an additional FLL team and a FIRST Tech Challenge team for grades 8-12 next season.  In order to provide our area students with these awesome educational, growth opportunities, we need support from adult coaches, mentors, volunteers, and community businesses and organizations. If you are interested in helping a robotics team in one or more of these capacities, or simply want more information, please contact Katie by calling 309-446-9575 or emailing khahn@brimfieldlibrary.org.  Thank you!
