The lure of Legos is strong at the Stewart C. Meyer Harker Heights Library.

Children have plenty of opportunities this summer to imagine and create using Legos. Sometimes the lure is strong enough, that parents cannot resist lending a hand in the imagining and creating.

Last week, children built a city for Thursday’s Family Fun Night.

In the coming week, there are two more opportunities to build. Monday is the summer weekly meeting of the Building Blocks Club and July 26 is the year-round monthly meeting of the club. Both meetings are at 2 p.m.

Another lure for children is animals, and there are two opportunities next week to experience animals through library programs, one with exotic animals and one with pets.

Safari Greg will be at the Wacky Wednesday show Wednesday. Educational entertainer Greg Carter will showcase exotic animals and present animal science. Showtimes are at 9:30 and 11 a.m.

The Critter Club will meet at 2 p.m. Wednesday. School-age children learn how to care for pets.

Looking further ahead, a Pet Party is Aug. 6. For information, call 254-953-5491.

Living healthy does not have to be complicated. A Nutrition for Stress workshop is at 6 p.m. Tuesday. Get tips from dietitian Megan Norwood on how to manage stress.

A great way to end the week is with an evening of yoga. Yoga After Hours is from 6 to 7:30 p.m. July 26.

Titles on yoga, nutrition, animals and Legos are available for checkout.

Recent arrivals: “Exercise in Action: Yoga,” by Betsy Kase; “Pick Your Yoga Practice: Exploring and Understanding Different Styles of Yoga,” by Meagan McCrary; “My Pet Book,” a picture book by Bob Staake; “Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know,” an eBook by Alexandra Horowitz; and “The Lego Movie,” a DVD.
