Thank you to Mollaigh and Ailin Flannery for donating tubs of LEGO bricks to the Library.  We are on our way to starting a LEGO program at the Library!
Watch the Calendar for dates early in 2018!



 
Donations
 We are planning to have Lego/Duplo programs starting in 2018, but are looking for some LEGO donations.  We have a start, but need some more bricks before we can schedule some LEGO activities.
Please contact Mrs. K  (dkofron@hopkintonma.gov) if you are able to donate any LEGO and DUPLO bricks.
Thanks!
