Lego lovers unite: North Delta Library taps into toy's popularity to boost literacy and numeracy skills among children.

Lego Club now up and running at George Mackie Library

Creating things with popular toy improves kids' comprehension skills.

The George Mackie Library is now hosting a weekly Lego Club, which meets every Thursday from 3:30-4:30 p.m.

Kids are invited to create their own masterpieces which will then be photographed for display.

This hour of fun improves children’s literacy and comprehension.

“Training the brain to build a cohesive concept out of basic components is fundamental to good literacy” says Ian McLean in this Lego lovers unite article: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-09-21/building-literacy-and-library-attendance-with-lego/6792154.

The George Mackie Library is located at 8440 112 St.
