PHOTOS: Kids at Southglenn Library become one with history

Tween activities are among many in library district


A bunch of kids cutting up cardboard and tape and covering themselves in it was all part of the plan April 5 at Southglenn Library.

The Living Statues and Structures event — part of Arapahoe Libraries' never-ending schedule of activities for kids, teens and adults — brought young children and pre-teens together and pitted teams against each other to create “human versions” of famous historical structures.

“I love that they just jumped in,” said Amie Stapleton, a programming specialist at the library at 6972 S. Vine St. in Centennial. “These kids are so smart and creative, and they do amazing things. And they work together whether they know each other or not — the teamwork is amazing.”
