June 2 marked the restart of the Galt library’s Lego program, which lets children use their imagination to build structures and objects out of Legos. On Thursdays this June, from 2-4 p.m., the public is welcome to participate.
Due to the pandemic, “we haven’t had any indoor programing,” noted Samantha LeBlanc, branch supervisor of the Galt-Marian O. Lawrence Library. All indoor activities had to be put on hold and, recently, the library has brought back indoor activities from pre-COVID-19, starting with the Lego program.
Prior to the pandemic, the Lego program had been up and running on a monthly basis for several years.
Several kids and families joined the party on Thursday. The turnout appeared to be successful as children, like Kate Nazimk and Malachi O’Brien, pieced Legos together, building farms and homes.
“I thought it would be good for my son to come in, play and interact with other kids,” said parent Maritza Vizcarra. The chance to interact and bond with other kids was the main reason that brought families out.
For many, this program is a great opportunity for children to keep busy during summer break and show their creative skills.
“It’s really cool seeing their strengths and gifts come out,” parent Aimee O’Brien said.
Every Thursday until the end of June, the public is welcome to join others in playing with Legos. The Galt-Marian O. Lawrence Library is located at 1000 Caroline Ave. For more information, contact the library at email@example.com.
