Got LEGOS? Help us build a LEGO club!

Standard

Lee County Library needs your help!  We are planning LEGO building club events in the near future and we need LEGOS!  Please consider donating new or used DUPLO and LEGO blocks at any Lee County Library location.  Tax deduction forms are available.  For more information call (229)759-2369.

Wondering what LEGOS have to do with libraries?  Check out this article from School Library Journal:

“What’s the connection between Legos and books, you ask? Promoting play contributes to early literacy      development by increasing attention span, memory, creativity, and language and vocabulary skills. It also lays the foundation for logical mathematical thinking, scientific reasoning, and problem solving—things they’ll carry with them throughout their school years, says “Play = Learning,” a recent study by Dorothy Singer, a senior research scientist at Yale University’s Department of Psychology and Child Study Center.”
