Read On! Late for LEGOs

I was late submitting my article for this week. So late, in fact that Terry had to email me to make sure I hadn’t disappeared from Pryor. While, the first part of January has been unusually busy for me, mostly with meetings, I can’t honestly use that as an excuse for my tardiness. In all honesty, I was late submitting my article because I was busy building LEGO sets.\

Haley, our Research and Genealogy Librarian, mentioned a few weeks ago that she’d like to do a LEGO display in our large display case located in her department. Not only do they make a cool display, January 28th is International LEGO Day! We all happily agreed to bring our various LEGO sets to put in the display.

Most of these LEGO sets had to be reassembled, so we’ve had a grand time during lunch breaks and down time building. You can see the fruit of our labor in the display case now. Marie and Amanda did an amazing job assembling London’s Tower Bridge, which takes up almost half of the case. The rest of the sets run the gamut of heroes (both real life and made up), library-themed pieces, and Minecraft scenes.

In other display news, our staff has been busy setting up displays of books and DVDs. Bonnie and Jerri assembled some of their favorite musicals at the East end of the checkout desk. Marie found a Bayeux Tapestry generator online, which inspired her Middle Ages book display. Kalyn’s display at the Computer Lab desk will help with your New Year’s Resolutions, and Amanda and Autumn have their favorite picture books next to the Youth Services desk.

While you’re at the library looking at our LEGO sets and materials displays, don’t forget we’ve got toddler storytimes on Wednesdays at 10:30 am; Teen Night the first Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm; and events for adults on the second Thursday at 7:00 pm.
