Lego Club

Kentland Library’s Lego Club returns on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 10:00 am. We have six buckets of Legos — all kinds & colors — lots of choices. The fun & creativity begins when the Lego buckets are emptied out on the floor as everyone helps each other find pieces; put things together; and share ideas. At the end of an hour, pictures are taken of everyone’s creations. Come for a fun hour of creating & visiting with friends. No registration required. All ages welcome (preschool with an adult).
