Family LEGO day

Join us Saturday, September 29th at 2:00 PM in the Community Room to build the CPL Story Land. To coincide with the Your Dream Library Contest, we will be building vehicles, settings, and other items from your favorite stories. Build the Shrieking Shack, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, or James' Giant Peach. Later, we'll catalogue your entries for future inspiration.
