legosThe ABC Library have LEGO clubs at the Erna Fergusson, Juan Tabo, Taylor Ranch, and Tony Hillerman library. If you're a great Lego builder, or a first timer, this is the place for you.

Open to anyone interested, no need to sign up. This will give children the opportunity to get creative and build anything they choose with LOTS of Legos. They can either work on their own creations, or build as a team.

The library will provide the Legos, while the kids provide the imagination! All materials must stay at the library, so bring a camera to capture your adventures. Please leave your Legos at home. We don't want you to lose your favorite pieces.

If you have any Legos to spare, please consider donating them to any of the LEGO Club libraries.

Call the participating libraries for more information.
