Lego-my-Library: SPRING!

On an unseasonably warm day in March, we gathered in the library to build with Legos. Believe it or not, it felt good to get out of the hot sun for awhile! Miss Sarah supplied the theme--SPRING--and the children supplied the industrious creativity! Come on in to the Children's Room to see the results--they'll be on display until next month, when we'll deconstruct them and build a whole bunch of new creations!
The next Lego-my-Library event will be during April vacation (Thursday, April 26). Registration is required, and begins on April 12. For more information, talk to Miss Sarah or Miss Sue at 673-2288 or
