Kids invited to make an optical illusion spinning toy at the library
–On Monday, March 25, 4-5 p.m., in the Library Story Room, the Paso Robles City Library invites children ages 7-12 to participate in Maker Monday and make an optical illusion spinning toy!
“By giving children a safe place to design, test, and create, we encourage these learners to question the world around them in ways that develop critical thinking skills, while digging in and getting their hands dirty,” says Youth Services Librarian Melissa Bailey. “Maker Mondays is one of my favorite classes to teach because the children always come up with new ways to do the project that are so creative and we get to make a big mess! What’s more fun than that?”
Maker Mondays are the fourth Monday of every month. The program is free but limited to the first 30 participants. Free admission tickets are available at the Children’s Desk beginning at 3:30 p.m. the day of the program.

The Paso Robles City Library is located at 1000 Spring Street and is open Monday – Friday 10-8, and Saturday 10-5. For more information on library programs and events, please call (805) 237-3870 or visit www.prcity.com/library.
