Leap Week

It’s leap week! 2020 is a leap year, which means February has one extra day. To celebrate, you can visit the library every day at OPL After School and be a scientist with our wind STEAM stations! These stations were provided by the Franklin Institute’s LEAP Into Science program. Today’s activity is engineering a wind powered LEGO car!

Adults & teens can join us on Thursday, March 26 at 6pm to make these adorable bunny flower pots at Pinterest Night!
