SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A special program at the Library Center featuring LEGOs is meant to inspire and encourage fun for kids in fourth grade to eighth grade.

“We’re here usually at least an hour,” says Library Center Youth Services Manager Sarah Bean Thompson. “Every Monday afternoon through June and July at 4 p.m. in the Story Hour room at the Library Center, we are having special programs.”

Monday’s program was called Monday Madness: LEGO Blocks Building, and looks to build and encourage fun at the Library Center. The program also highlights the Lego books available at the library.

“We wanted to give the tweens a chance to play LEGOs and meet other tweens that have an interest in LEGOs and get a chance to build and what kind of fun they can have at the library,” says Thompson. “Building with LEGO inspires creativity and gives them a chance to explore and build something fun. We want them to create whatever they can imagine.”

There is no registration for the library tween programs. They are held every Monday in June and July at 4 p.m. in the Story Hour room at the Library Center. Each program is dubbed Monday Madness.

“The next two are going to be Greek mythology and Percy Jackson,” says Thompson. “And photography.”
