PRESTONSBURG – The Floyd County Library Lego Club met Tuesday for its monthly meeting of fun and creation. More and more teachers are using Legos in the classroom to foster critical thinking skills. The Floyd County Library supports the efforts of teachers and parents by providing opportunities that children will not only find interesting and entertaining but also educational.

“The library offers so many cool events and classes,” said Shelia Tackett of Auxier. “If parents are not taking advantage of the learning opportunities available here, they are really missing out.”

Working with Legos enable students to understand challenging subjects, encourages them to develop critical thinking skills, grow ideas, and make their own creations through playful learning experiences. Legos inspire students to learn skills that are becoming essential for careers.

The library provides the Legos and gives children the opportunity to work on their own creation or build as a team. Occasionally, there will be demonstrations and challenges to push students to think, analyze and work together to solve a problem.

The Lego club meets once a month at the Floyd County Library in Prestonsburg. The meetings are open to the public and there is no cost to join the club. For more information on the Lego club and other opportunities available at the Floyd County Library, visit www.fclib.org.
