Inverurie Libray are looking for a slightly different type of donation, they are appealing for donations of Lego.
The Library say that they are looking for Lego donations for the possible start of a dedicated club.
They would appreciate any donations of Lego and Duplo from the community.
Initially they are looking for looking for Bricks and Base Plates, but anything would be much appreciated.
They are looking at setting up a Club at the Library, possibly starting off as a Monthly Session and then if popular the Library would look at increasing the number of sessions.
A possible time for the club would be in the afternoon during the week once school has finished or possibly on a Saturday. There would be themes for each session, i.e create an animal, castles, pirate ship, dinosaurs, etc.
And what exactly is the connection between Lego and books? According to the School Library Journal “Promoting play contributes to early literacy development by increasing attention span, memory, creativity, and language and vocabulary skills.”
Anyone with any unwanted Lego or Duplo to doante can contact the Library on (01467) 621619.
