South Ayrshire Council is encouraging children of all ages to visit their local library to get creative with Lego. P2 children from Newton Primary School were keen to get involved and try the Lego out for themselves.

Lego is available on request at all Council Libraries and is part of the 'Linger Longer' campaign which reminds people that libraries are about much more than just books. As well as fun activities for the kids, there is also free wi-fi, eBooks and even games consoles.

Carnegie Library has two organised Lego sessions on the last Monday of each month: 4pm -5pm & 6pm – 7pm. There is also a session on the last Tuesday of each month 6 -7pm. A further session is being organised for Thursday evenings.

Councillor Bill Grant, Economic Development, Tourism and Leisure Portfolio Holder for South Ayrshire Council said: "This is a great way to get children and adults into our libraries and it was fantastic to see the school children work together to come up with their fabulous creations. Libraries can be very important when it comes to child development and the addition of the Lego proves that learning can be fun too."  

Joining the library could open up a new world for your child. Libraries have their own separate area for children and there are lots of free activities for even the youngest members.
