The first Monday of every month, from 4 to 5 p.m., the Brownwood Public Library hosts Lego Club for kindergarten through fifth grade-aged children. Each child is encouraged to use their imagination and have fun building whatever their hearts’ desire with their parents, or parents can tend to things in the library and leave their children to build Legos with the other kids in the club.
Becky Isbell, manager of the Brownwood Public Library, created the Lego Club for kids in Brown County. Fiction Lego books are among the most popular books children gravitate towards, and Legos also help children work on spatial skills, science technology, and architecture while having fun, Isbell said.
At the end of each club meeting the children explain to the room what they’ve created. Isbell said her favorite part of the club is the children sharing and explaining their creation.
“It’s really interesting to see how they’ve imagined and created,” Isbell said.
While video games and watching YouTube is said to give Legos a run for their money, the Lego Club has them beat at Brownwood Public Library.
