Area youngsters create Legos for Bradford Library project


BRADFORD — Three more additions to the Bradford Public Library’s Lego Christmas Village and Santa Claus Town were made available after Erica Gaynor, Elijah Sowers and Wyatt Hughes came into the facility Saturday morning to expand on the exhibit.

Library officials invited children 10 years and older through adults to come into the library to take part in the project.

They asked all Lego lovers and aficionados to help build the village and town for the library.

The original invitation said, “We will have a new building to add this year.”

The library provided all Legos for the project.

Erica, 13, said this is her second year to participate. She made a Christmas tree and presents. Elijah, 10, was working on a workshop. And, 8-year-old Wyatt was working on a Santa’s sled in his first year of taking part. Also having taken part were Ryan and Mackenzie Hocker.

The village and Santa Claus Town will be displayed throughout the library with the names of the builders. The entries received this year, plus ones that were on exhibit last year, will be featured.
