Library built of Lego

Build your ‘library of the future’ out of Lego

East Riding Libraries are encouraging local residents to take part in a competition being run right across the UK to invite people to get creative and build their ‘library of the future’ out of Lego.

The competition is run by CILIP, the library and information association, and the most innovative and inspired entry will win tickets to Legoland Windsor and £500 for their local library.

The winning Lego library will be selected by library champion and radio and TV personality Bobby Seagull (star of BBC Two series Monkman and Seagull’s Genius Guide to Britain) and will be announced during National Libraries Week 2019 (7-12 October).

Entry to the competition will be open between Monday, 23 September and Monday, 7 October.

To enter between those dates, entrants should imagine and build their Lego library of the future, take a photo of their creation, and share it on twitter. Entrants should tag @LibrariesWeek using the hashtag #LEGOLibrary and say what is innovative or unique about their creation. It might have virtual reality, or gaming rooms, print-on-demand machines - it's up to the imagaination.

Councillor Shaun Horton, portfolio holder for tourism, culture and leisure at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “I hope that schools in the East Riding will get involved in this great competition, and also children and young people can have a go at home.

“When people from the East Riding do enter, I would ask them to also tag @ERidingLMA (East Riding Libraries, Museums and Archives) in their posts, so we can be sure that their entry came from this area.”
