Builders Brigade

Kids have the opportunity to use their best creativity to design buildings, creatures, and more using Lego and Mega blocks. They can work alone, or in a team with peers. A different theme is picked for each session and kids can build on that theme or build a creation of their own. At the end of each session, a photo of each child’s creation will be put on display at the library for all to see until the next club date!

This program will occur twice each month for all ages. Children ages 7 and under must be accompanied by a parent. No registration required.
