Lego Club at the Library

Kaeden Langfitt helped children’s librarian Missy Hansen assemble all 80 of the small Lego figures the club received with their purchase.

The first meeting of the Clarion Public Library’s new Lego Club saw six children working on Lego creations and playing Lego video games. Children’s librarian Missy Hansen, who organized the club, said that fit the number of kids who initially signed up, but she hopes the club grows more popular with time.

Once the Club has solidified, Hansen said she plans to do building challenges, such as seeing who can build the tallest tower the fastest, or seeing which build a bridge that can withstand the most force.

The next Lego Club activity will be March 16 from 3:45-4:45 p.m. Second graders through middle schoolers are welcome—though Hansen said she may plan an adult Lego night in the future.

The club was made possible with a $250 grant from the Shopko Foundation.
