On your marks, get set, BUILD - Lego at the library

July 27, 2013 | Alison | Comments (0)

The future engineers are at Albert Campbell on Friday afternoons!  Library staff put out the blocks and different Lego books and wait to see what happens. 

Dozens of excited children arrive with thier parents filling the library with the sounds of blocks clicking together and discussions about how this project is going to work.  As one child abandons a project, another picks it up and works to improve the design.

This is a program that rarely ends on time.  Once the blocks are out they stay out until there's no one interested left in the department.

At the end of the day, the books are gone and these creations are left.
