On the street

Do you like Legos?

The next Lego Club meeting will be held at 4 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 24, at Marianna Black Library in Bryson City.

The library provides Legos and Duplos for ages 3 and up. The only thing area children need to bring is their imagination. This program provides an excellent opportunity for children to learn how to develop fine motor skills. It also develops problem-solving skills, organization, planning through construction, and improves creativity.

All area children are invited join in and let your creativity shine. This month, the theme will be “Transportation.” The Marianna Black Library is also requesting that you consider donating your gently used Legos and Duplos to the library, to help expand the Lego Club.

For more information, call the library at 828.488.3030. The Marianna Black Library, a member of the Fontana Regional Library, is located in downtown Bryson City at the corner of Academy and Rector.
