Library Hosts LEGO StoryStarter Program

LEGO Story Scene

During the week of Spring Break for Glynn County Schools, the Marshes of Glynn Libraries hosted a pilot mini-camp for a group of students from the local Boys and Girls Clubs. Each morning, these students worked on a story development project using LEGO StoryStarter kits. With the kits, camp participants built five or six separate scenes using LEGO building blocks and characters in order to tell a story that their groups created. These scenes were photographed and loaded into LEGO’s Story Visualizer software in order to create a picture book.

The LEGO StoryStarter kits were purchased with funds from a STEAM mini-grant that was allocated by the Georgia Public Library Service. The grant was made possible by the Federal Grants to States Program from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
