The Niles Public Library’s Lego Club is built on the idea that motivated and creative kids, ranging from Kindergarten through 8th Grade, will produce clever and interesting projects if you take these steps:
1) put a few thousand Legos in front of them
2) maintain a safe space where they are free to experiment, plus “show off” creations to each other and their parents or caregivers
3) take photos of Lego-makers with their creations (everyone who wants theirs taken) and post to social media
4) provide a tasty treat when Lego Club ends (a “thank you” for everybody’s cleaning up and putting Legos back in their bins).
