Lego Picture


 Every Wednesday from 3:45-7:00

All ages are welcome to have fun with our new collection of LEGOs. There is no pre-registration required for this program.  Please do not bring your own LEGOs.   We have plenty for all.   We’ll start off with a fun challenge question then have free play.  The LEGO creations made each week will be on display in the Kent Room until the following Tuesday.  Check out our Facebook page to see the photos!

Thank you to the LEGO Foundation and the Maine State Library for donating the LEGOs!
