Never underestimate the power and drive of a group of determined eleven year-olds on a mission.
The Eaglebots, the Eagleville Elementary Lego League group, were concerned about barriers to accessibility at Alice Baker Library. Group members undertook needed improvements as their Lego League fundraising project this past year, with wildly successful results.
Tuesday evening they showcased their contributions at an Open House at the library. The kids' fundraising purchased automatic doors, adaptive computer keyboards, larger computer monitors, a voice-activated dictation system, book grabbers, book totes, and wheeled book carts. In addition, they authorized improvements to the outside pavement, making a smoother and more level entryway. They also made larger and more readable signs for various areas in the library.
Emily Pieper and Alex Adduci demonstrate our new book grabbers.
Garret Ramstack, Jordan Teglia, Emily Pieper, and Alex Adduci and a job well-done.
We appreciate their great Eaglebot enthusiasm and our patrons are enjoying the improvements at the library.
