Lego Donation Infographic

Please help make my dream of Lego Night into a reality by dropping off your pre-loved Legos at the Library! Our goal is to help local kids get together for a fun and creative evening in the library once or twice a month. So far exactly two Legos have been donated. So if you’re looking for a new home for your beloved Legos, please think of us!! <3 Charlotte
