Our Lego donation booth is filling up! But we’re still humbly asking for your generous support thru Lego and Duplo donations for our future Lego Club. Next Friday, the 23rd, will be the last day to pour your donations into the booth (but we’ll still be taking donations after that). Many libraries have Lego programs already, and since this year’s theme for the Summer Reading Program is “Build a Better World”, what better time than now to start our own Lego program. We of course couldn’t do this without you, our patrons! And we are truly grateful for your generous support! Thank you!

Patrons may borrow up to 3 games at a time and the lending period is 2 weeks with the option to renew if no one else has a hold on the game. Fines will be 25 cents per item per day late.
