Normal operating hours are expected to resume on Saturday.
All summer, children and teens have competed at various Tulsa City-County Libraries to build the best Lego creation. Now they will face off for the ultimate in Lego building bragging rights.
To qualify for the finals children built an original design based on the Summer Reading Program theme “Dream Big: Read.” Teens created an original design based on the Summer Reading Program theme “Own the Night.”
Finalists will compete in a timed event to see who can build the best creation and claim the title as Champion of the 2012 Great Lego Build Off. The Great Lego Build Off, July 27 in Central Library’s Aaronson Auditorium, Fourth Street and Denver Avenue, features children’s and teen competitions: Children, 10-11:30 a.m. featuring 43 finalists and Teens, 1-3 p.m. featuring 28 finalists.
The young designers will appear before a panel of judges to explain why their Lego design is worthy of first place. The top three finalists in each age category will receive a Walmart gift card, certificate and trophy.
