Lego enthusiasts should check out the display case just outside the Gallery on the second floor of the library. It contains sculptures designed and built by members of The Trove’s Lego Club.
Children in grades 1 through 6 are invited to join in the building fun at the monthly meetings. Those who recently attended shared some of their thoughts about why they like to build with Lego blocks:
“You can make different things … they’re pretty cool.”
“It helps you be an architect.”
“It could be creative.”
“I get to learn how to build stuff.”
“They make me happy.”
More than one child said simply, “It’s fun.”
Established with materials purchased by the library and donated by members of the local community, the Lego Club offers children the opportunity to build with Lego blocks providing hours of enjoyment, team building and learning. The support for making this program a reality is greatly appreciated.
Anyone who has Lego materials taking up space in the attic or basement might consider giving them a new home in The Trove. We are in particular need of Lego figures to add to our collection.
Upcoming Trove Lego Club meetings are Thursday, September 20, and Thursday, October 4.
