Building is a theme at the Stewart C. Meyer Harker Heights Public Library this week. Building with words, blocks or basic learning skills give patrons varied reasons for visiting, and enjoying the company of readers, writers and learners.

A new weekly program for young children will continue through the end of December.

Little STEAMers is under way. Fostering a child’s natural curiosity, concepts in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics are introduced in combination with sensory development, motor skills, logic and reasoning, and other targeted skills.

Children 18 months and younger can join in the learning at 9 a.m. Tuesday. Children 5 years and younger can join in the learning at 10 a.m. Tuesday. For information, call 254-953-5491.

Writers can find inspiration with fellow writers during the NaNoWriMo meeting 6 p.m. Wednesday.

National Novel Writing Month is going strong at the Heights library with caffeine and conversation with writers of novels, plays, or other writing forms. For more information, call Reference Librarian Sandy Nelson at 254-953-5491.

Busy Builders use Magna Tiles®, Legos®, and their imaginations to build at 6 p.m. Thursday.
