About this role

Lego is an amazing way to get kids into libraries again and again. It teaches various soft skills that will shape the way that children work and interact with others including creative thinking, teamwork, communication, conflict resolution and problem solving. Lego enables children to be as adventurous as the want, allowing them to experiment, test out and build new ideas.

• Prepare and run Lego sessions in the library
• Welcome children and their parents/carers as they arrive and introduce new people to the group
