LEGO Club

Enjoy free play and building with LEGO at our monthly LEGO Club.

Some months we have a theme for kids to try out.
We also have many LEGO books and LEGO Club Magazine that kids can use for inspiration.

The American Library Association's (ALA's) Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) has partnered with LEGO to provide a digital toolkit to inspire creating, playing, making, and sharing. Children learn and have fun while they share, play, and build with LEGO in the library. 

For kids ages 3-10, 1:30-3:00 p.m.

Please don't bring your own LEGO! We have plenty of LEGO for everyone to use. We have Duplos for younger children.

Thank you to the Friends of the Takoma Park Maryland Library for generously supplying us with the materials for this event!
