Legos are all the rage and we are adding them to the library for Summer Reading. Following Summer Reading they will stay here permanently as an interactive resource. We have ordered several sets of Legos but need a whole lot more! If you could check out the bottom of your toy boxes or the back of your closets and donate those odd pieces that are living there we would be thrilled!
We will, of course, accept donations of new pieces, too! Even adults are finding that using their skills to build amazing buildings and other items is a lot of fun.

Please, join in the fun and donate then you, too, can make your building dreams become a reality!
