Denver Public Libraries are hosting a series of LEGO building parties this month. Creations, inspired by any exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, will be entered into the 2017 LEGO Contest. Each library will provide FREE building supplies, but with LEGOs being so popular, you should come early as space and supplies are limited. You can also build you own model at home and drop off your creation along with an entry form at one of 21 participating branches
Models must submitted between April 8 to 15. Judging will take place April 17 to 22. Each library will name a winner in the following categories: Young Child, Child, Teen and Family/Team (up to 4 people). Winners at each branch receive a set of tickets to DMNS or a LEGO themed book. You must pick up your creation by April 26.
Here’s the model build schedule: Saturday, April 8 — 10 a.m. at Central, Children’s Library and Sam Gary; 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Ross-Cherry Creek; 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. at Pauline Robinson; 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Green Valley Ranch; 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Gonzales.
