Library Lego Club Back

Thousands of colorful building blocks covered the carpet of the conference room in the Uintah County Library on late Thursday afternoon. Along with a slew of school year activities, a new year of the LEGO club is now officially underway and there was plenty of little builders in attendance on day one. According to library club coordinator Melinda Barlow, the LEGO club is a great example of what volunteers do in helping make library clubs a success. “We phased out LEGO mindstorm because we could not involve as many kids and it was hard to find enough volunteers to run it but we have a lot of interest in LEGOS,” says Barlow. “This year’s LEGO club is aimed at ages 5 and up and would not have been possible without Jenny Anderson, our volunteer, coming forward to run it. I don’t think we would have started it up again without her.” Volunteers like Jenny make many of the library clubs possible.
