HPL LEGO Club Goes Medieval

This Saturday, October 29 at 10:30 am, the Hampton Public Library LEGO Club will be exploring Medieval Times!  We'll enjoy a short talk focused on the following topics: castles and princesses.  Then we'll start building our LEGO creations.  

Thanks to some generous donations from our patrons our LEGO Club members will have more bricks to work with as they build their medieval creations. Since our last meeting, our collection has grown by several thousand pieces!  Thank you again to all the patrons who donated LEGO bricks.  

We look forward to seeing all of our HPL LEGO Club members this Saturday for a fun and exciting building day!
