Kids ages 10 & older can pick up a Bristlebot Take and Make at the Coos Bay Public Library beginning September 30. Bristlebots are a STEM project designed to get kids thinking about basic electrical concepts. Each kit contains a small motor, a cell battery, two pipecleaners, two googly eyes, a piece of adhesive, and a toothbrush head. When assembled, the "bot" will move across a flat surface using the momentum of the motor. A limited number of kits are available.
Due to staffing shortages, the library will be changing its open hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays to 11am-4pm, effective Thursday, October 21st.
The lobby will remain open until 6pm for hold pickup and library staff will continue to be available by phone 11am-6pm.
