Time to play with Legos

Two area libraries are playing with Legos these days ... that is ... providing programming that utilizes the popular toy. Here's a look at two offerings.

The new Children's Librarian at Wissahikcon Valley Public Library, Tyler Works, is starting many new programs and an entirely new summer series of events focusing on Tweens and Teens, in addition to the regular Summer Reading Club.

One of Works' new ideas is a Lego Club. Call Works to sign up for the next club time and date. Students can build anything they wish, from buildings to planes. The library supplies the Legos. Works can always use more Lego donations. Call him at (215() 643-1320 extension 21 or visit the website at
The club meets in the Community Room of the Wissahickon Valley Public Library, 650 Skippack Pike (Route 73) in Blue Bell, just west of the intersection of Route 73 and Penllyn-Blue Bell Pike.

There's also a LEGO Club at MONTGOMERY COUNTY-NORRISTOWN PUBLIC LIBRARY YOUTH SERVICES DEPARTMENT, 1001 Powell St., Norristown. The club meets at 10:30 a.m.- noon , May 8 . Bring your imagination, build, and have fun. No age restriction—CHILDREN UNDER 8 MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A RESPONSIBLE ADULT. Youth Services Department, second floor. For information contact Shawnette Brown, (484) 844-2632, or Denise Pulgino Stout, (610) 278-5100, Ext. 3.

PICTURED ABOVE, students sort through Legos and get ready to create buildings, helicopters, planes and more. They can create any size or any color they desire.
