The Sussex County Library’s LEGO collection continues to grow. LEGO enthusiasts in Kindergarten and older are invited to monthly meetings of the LEGO Club at any of these four locations:

  • Main Library, 125 Morris Turnpike in Frankford on Saturday, February 17 at 10:00 a.m.;
  • Sussex-Wantage, 69 Route 639 in Wantage on Wednesday, February 21 at 4:30 p.m.;
  • Louise Childs, 21 Sparta Road in Stanhope on Thursday, February 22 at 3:30 p.m.; and
  • Dennis, 101 Main Street in Newton on Monday, February 26 at 3:30 p.m.

Children are encouraged to bring a friend and make new friends as they build, display and demolish their LEGO creations. “It’s totally free-form,” says Youth Services Librarian Rachel Burt. “So many LEGOs come in kits now, meant to be built to specific instructions and then you’re done! Our LEGO collection is donated by staff and families whose children have outgrown them. We’ve got unique shapes and sizes, some characters from kits, and generic bricks in the 1000s. Sometimes we’ll suggest a theme, but more often we just let the kids’ imaginations run wild. Their creations are always interesting and they always have fun.”

LEGO Clubs are limited to 20 participants at each location. Register at your local library or through the Events Calendar link at sussexcountylibrary.org.
