Play Well with LEGOs

We mean that literally. The name LEGO is an abbreviation of two Danish words "leg godt", meaning "play well”. And over the years countless children (and some adults) have … creating palaces, animals, super heroes, vehicles—to name only a few.

While those little LEGO bricks may make you say “ouch” when they liter the floor at your house (as they once did at mine), LEGOs also have a place at the Fauquier County Public library.

Each month, children K-5th grade meet at the Warrenton, John Marshall and Bealeton libraries to create with LEGO’s.  They hear a story, create something from LEGO’s based on the theme (April’s theme is architecture), and then enjoy LEGO free time. 

If your child loves LEGOs—and you would rather those little LEGO bricks scatter our floor than yours—mark your calendar for one of the April LEGO Club meetings:

  • Warrenton Library – Wednesday, April 10, 4 p.m.
  • John Marshall Library – Monday, April 15, 4:30 p.m.
  • Bealeton Library – Tuesday, April 16, 4 p.m.

LEGOs provided, just bring your imagination!
