Magic Recycled Box Workshop (Grades 4+)
Bring your children in grades 4 and up to the Newton Free Library for a Magic Recycled Box Workshop in Druker Auditorium, where they can use their imaginations to make a fort, a train, a robot or whatever they can think of out of a box. Bring your own boxes too, if you'd like.
This activity is part of the citywide Newton Unplugged celebration throughout March.
More About Newton Free Library
The three-floor Newton Free Library offers an extensive collection of both print and non-print material including books, music scores, magazines, newspapers, audio CDs and movies. It is a popular place for locals to not only relax with a book, but also to study and work using the wireless Internet access and computer lab, which offers printing services.
Aside from Internet and computer access, library patrons can also use individual study rooms and study desks as well as larger meeting rooms.
Art exhibits are located throughout the library and a gallery on the main floor features monthly collections by regional artists.
The Newton Free Library is a one-mile walk from the Newton Center and Newton Highlands MBTA stops (green line, D branch) as well as the Newtonville MBTA Commuter Rail station (purple line, Framingham/Worcester line). The #59 bus also stops nearby at the corner of Homer Street and Walnut Street.
