The Children's Department is now accepting Lego donations for a summer program!
The Children's Department of the IRC Main Library plans to start a Lego Club for five to twelve year olds this summer. The goal of the program is to foster creativity and problem solving via the construction of Lego creations, as well as to encourage a positive association with the library for our younger patrons.
In order to make this program a success we are relying on the generosity of the community to donate new or used Lego blocks for use in the program. For more information contact Patti Fuchs at email@example.com or call 772-770-5060 ext 4132. Your help is appreciated!
