Houghton Lake Public Library Receives Grant from RCCF

Third through fifth grade students from Roscommon County will have the opportunity to join the Houghton Lake Public Library’s new Lego Club, thanks to a grant made by the Youth Advisory Council of RCCF. Grant funding totaling $1,587.60 was provided by the Roscommon County Kellogg Youth Fund, which is an endowed fund that is administered by the Roscommon County Community Foundation.

“The goal of the project is to create a monthly Lego Club that would meet at the library and develop skills through both creative play and STEM learning,” Sarah Maddox of HLPL states. Grant funding purchased the kits, including mazes, bricks, and baseplates, that are needed to begin programming.
