Lego Club - It's A Snap! Lego Art

Thank you to all of our Lego Club participants for helping out with our Lego community art project! We designed and assembled a Lego landscape for the Wenham Museum special exhibit: It's a Snap! Community Lego Art. We added pizzazz to our design by including special Lego pieces that were fabricated on the Library's 3-D printer. Please make sure you stop by the Wenham Museum to take a peek at our creation.

Lego Club at the Hamilton-Wenham Library runs on Wednesdays from September 10th - November 19th at 3:00 p.m. This is a non-competitive, non-robotics program, created to share the joy of Legos. No experience or registration necessary. Stop by and join the fun!
