LEGOs Wanted For Youth Programming!

Tired of stepping on LEGOs? Bring them to us and we'll make sure they get plenty of play and then get put away!  We plan to use a lot of LEGOs for programming in 2017.  Donations of basic bricks and all types of classic LEGOs are needed!  LEGOs may be brought to the Children's Department during library hours.
