Construction At Barnstead Library!
annual Lego Construction Party on Saturday, March 30, 2013 was another
great success! We had 13 children, varying in age, who participated in
building many spectacular structures. Most of the children really
enjoyed being creative and building something unique, while others had
fun working with adults on more elaborate sets to build specific items.
It was a joy for us to watch the children concentrate, cooperate, and
construct their masterpieces. Please visit the library to view all of
the children’s wonderful creations, which will be on display until the
end of April.
staff would like to thank all those who donated blocks for this event.
We would also like to thank the Meehan and Varney families for helping
