The LEGO foundation has funded the “We Care and Share Project” which is currently a workshop for kids at the Altus Public Library.
Kathy Hale and Donna Smith with the Southern Prairie Library System in Altus said the kids and parents are enthused and have really been enjoying getting to make LEGO creations during the workshop at the library. The LEGO idea is based on a system where all elements fit together providing unlimited play possibilities. “LEGO products are more than a toy, they enhance group activities and provide the chance to promote emotional intelligence,” said Hale.
The LEGO foundation has provided free LEGO bricks to libraries across the nation to encourage creative thinking. The purpose of the foundation is to show compassion and human interest in children around the world.
All workshops at the Altus Public Library are held on Saturdays from 3 to 4 p.m. and are free to attend. The 2016 schedule is for kids from ages 3 to 14. Space is limited, and the library will start signing children up approximately two weeks before the date of the workshop. Call 477-2890 for more information.
The schedule for ages 9 to 14, is April 23, July 23, and Oct. 22; for ages 6 to 10, is May 14, Aug. 20 and Nov. 19; for ages 3 to 7, is June 18, Sept. 24 and Dec. 17.
