They’re back! Tim and Dawn Dunbar are bringing all new Lego sets to the T. B. Scott Free Library during July and August. Beyond Books Community ArtShare Program is excited to present: Wait, That’s LEGO Too?
Tim and Dawn Dunbar accidently started collecting LEGO sets in the late 1980s, when they bought some sets for their daughters. It has since turned into dozens of new sets each year. Tim says that they consider picking out ones that they like and spending time together assembling them to be more of a hobby than a collection. Sharing them with others is fun, so every set, totaling 620, is currently assembled and on display in their home. This amounts to around 400,000 individual LEGO pieces. Last year the Dunbars visited Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry to view the Nathan Sawaya LEGO sculpture exhibit.
Tim and Dawn will have a wide assortment of their LEGO collection on display at the T.B. Scott Library during the months of July and August. Come in and choose your favorite for a chance to win your very own LEGO succulent kit!
Lego Day at the Library is July 25th this year. Come enjoy fun things to do on the 2nd floor. Tim and Dawn will once again be available 4-6 pm to answer questions and demonstrate another remote-controlled LEGO creation. Check out all the kits including dinosaurs, Star Wars robots, the movie UP, and a very detailed Old Fishing Village. You’re sure to think, “Wait, that’s LEGO too?”
