JAMES CITY-The James City County Library will officially unveil its new Kiwanis Kids Idea Studio during a grand opening celebration on June 26.
The Kiwanis Kids Idea Studio, which first underwent construction as part of a renovation project of the children’s section of the library in 2019, features several children’s museum-style elements for kids of all ages designed to promote creativity and build literary skills while having fun at the library.
Among the interactive features of the Idea Studio are air tubes that teach kids about physics; a ball wall with various magnetic ramps, shoots, and spinners designed to teach children about kinetic energy, friction, and inertia; a pixel peg wall; a Lego wall; and other hands-on stations and activities. The Idea Studio also has a play marketplace and vet clinic as well as a story time room that will double as an art studio.
The original opening of the Kiwanis Kids Idea Studio was delayed due to the covid-19 pandemic. The new grand opening date is set for Saturday, June 26, beginning at 10am. The ceremony will include family activities, music, and other entertainment throughout the day. For more information, visit www.wrl.org.
