The Douglas County Public Library announced the winners of the Winter LEGO Challenge held Dec. 18 to Jan. 8.

The contest was open to individuals and families, and architects of all ages were invited to participate. DCPL technician Heather Frueh noted the popularity of this year’s “Games” theme, and said that those who joined the challenge built “fun and creative entries that ranged from playground games to video games to board games.”

Winning designs can be seen in the Minden Library’s display case through Friday. All participants may pick up their entries after that date and are invited to choose a prize from the library’s treasure chest.

Congratulations to all the winners.

First Saturday Family Movie

Fittingly, DCPL screens “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part” on Saturday at 10 a.m. in the Minden Library’s meeting room. There is no cost to view the film and complimentary popcorn will be served.

Both the Winter LEGO Challenge and the First Saturday Family Movies are sponsored by The Friends of the DCPL.
