'Enjoy some of your favourite library activities at home
Our libraries might be closed but that doesn't mean you have to miss out on some of your favourite activities - join us on facebook for our weekly Story time and get building with our weekly LEGO challenge.
Lego Club Saturday at 11am - At 11am each Saturday, we will be setting a new building challenge and asking you to send us a picture of your creation. At our first facebook LEGO club we set the challenge to build a spacecraft and with a several days left before the next LEGO club you still have time to get building. Don't worry if you don't have any LEGO at home, you could use Duplo, Megablocks, K'Nex or any other construction set instead.
