Children’s Room


Sparked by a recent School Library Journal article and collaboration with the school librarian, we have decided to start a library Lego Club in the Children’s Room. Lego clubs, often led by a father/grandfather volunteer, are springing up in libraries throughout the nation in an effort to primarily attract boys to reading. The tactile and kinesthetic learning provided by the manipulatives, in duet with the creative opportunities for problem-solving, increasing attention and vocabulary, connects legos to literacy. Weekly building themes lead boys and girls to books about legos or books about specific structures, time periods, or science related to the building theme. In order to make this club possible, we need to please ask for public donations of new and used legos. Your generosity would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
