DALTON — LEGOs. K’nex. Keva planks.

The recent sessions of Kids’ Crew at the Dalton Community Library have been all about building things.

According to Jennifer Familetti, library program coordinator, some other activities the group explored in the past included an outer space theme and various crafts.

One Kids’ Crew member, Jacob Breckinridge, said he enjoys building with the Keva planks, which are like small wooden blocks, because of “the creativity you can do and what she (Familetti) lets us do.”

Gavin Waibel, another member, agreed, adding, “You can build anything, and there’s no limit to what you can do.”

Jacob and Waibel sat together during a recent Kids’ Crew session, building a bridge/ramp. They explained when one drops a ping-pong ball at the top of the ramp, it slides down and falls into a small box at the end.

Kids’ Crew is a free program for students in first through sixth grade, and is held from 4 to 5 p.m. every Tuesday during spring and fall sessions at the library. For more information call the library at 570-563-2014.
