Duck, duck, lego!

Lego Club is happening on Tuesday evenings from 5 - 7 pm. You can even drop in late if you have to. Every week the players work on a challenge. Recently they built Duck Families. And you might even notice a tea party over on the side there.

The goal of Lego Club: to have fun! Will you accept the challenge?

No engineering degree or experience needed. It's 100% Free! Legos brought to you by the Books Program and Senator Akshar.
