Weekly and Monthly Events at Ypsilanti District Library
The Ypsilanti District Library offers several events that recur weekly or monthly. I covered their weekly and monthly story time events earlier this week. The current schedule runs through the end of May.
Every Tuesday night is LEGO Night at the Whittaker Rd library. Join the library from 6-8p on Tuesdays for LEGO play. We attended a LEGO Night last year, and there were lots of DUPLOS available for younger children. The event offers non-guided free-building. I had been expecting more of a guided event which may have colored our expectations.
Make plans to stop at the Superior Branch for Wii Wednesdays from 5-6:30p. They will have open play of Wii Sports, Mario Kart, Super Mario Brothers, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and more.
