Build Challenges

Upcoming Dates:

Tuesday, December 27 @ 2:00 p.m.

Thursday, January 26 @ 7:00 p.m.

Our regular Build Challenge gives Lego fans of all skill levels a chance to build and design on a theme each meeting. We try to schedule a Build Challenge once a month and themes vary in level of difficulty and scope. Builders are given approximately 45 minutes to build. All creations which fit the theme will be displayed until the next Challenge.

The only rules for the Lego Build Challenges are 

  • Builders MUST use only Legos from the library's Lego collection.

  • Builders must share Legos with all those attending, please no hoarding of minifigs.

  • To be displayed, Lego creations must be able to fit on our wooden bookcase at the room entrance.

Everyone is welcome to join us and give their creativity a work out!

Watch here for new dates coming up this fall!
