Suffolk libraries have been promoting the benefits of the humble Lego brick as a fun activity which parents and children can enjoy together.
Lego clubs have started at a dozen libraries in the county, where they are reported to have proved popular with both children and adults.
At Framlingham Library, where the club has been running since September, people have donated their old Lego and raised more than £100 to build their collection.
Manager Lesley Clouting said: “Our new club has been a great success from day one, and the children really enjoy themselves – and it’s great to have so many parents staying to join in too.”
Suffolk Libraries says Lego encourages creativity and problem-solving skills, and has helped involve more boys in library activities.
