Did you know that the Attleboro Public Library hosts a monthly Lego club for kids in grades 1-6? One Monday evening each month, from 5pm-6:30pm, the area behind the Childrens Room desk is transformed into a Lego lovers’ paradise as we bring out 1000s of bricks for kids to use. The Lego Club is completely drop in, which means you don’t need to register ahead of time. Families can come and go any time during the 90 minute time slot. Parents are encouraged to entertain younger siblings in the Childrens Room while school aged children build with their friends.
Kids are given a “monthly challenge,” like animals or summer fun, and invited to take it from there, using imagination and ingenuity. Mrs. Brown displays idea sheets, Lego building books and other Lego themed titles for kids to browse through and borrow. Once they have finished building, they show their creation to Mrs. Brown, receive a label for their creation, and put it on display.
Lego building is a great way to introduce children to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math). While creating their masterpieces, kids are exploring STEAM concepts through hands-on experimentation. Building, counting and designing are skills that develop naturally when using Legos.
Lego Club is engaging for kids of all ages, a great way to meet new friends and fun for everyone involved. Our summer meetings are on June 15th, July 13th and August 10th. Come join us!
