Mary Cotton Public Libary says Thanks

Meet Lily, Naomi, Paul and Jadon who have been regular Lego builders at the Mary Cotton Public Library this summer. Thanks to a gift of a 10,000 piece Lego set from the State Libary of Kansas, summer has been a time for lots of creativity at the local library every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 9:30. These times will continue until school starts on Aug, 20th. Then the Legos will be available after school until 5:30 every Tuesday and Thursday for creative play unless the meeting room is occupied.

Visitors are invited to view the creations that can be found in the upstairs hallway.

Come see what 10000 Legos will build!
