Do you have young kids who like to play with LEGOs? Some cool events featuring those creative building blocks are coming your way at local museums this September.

Part of LEGO DUPLO's new Read! Build! Play! Project, the events will offer a new twist on creating with LEGOs. As storytellers read, children will be encouraged to build, sing, play and explore through original games and creative activities. The events are designed to introduce new ways to learn and are for children under age 5. Look for them at these museums:

Imagination Station Museum, in Wilson
Saturday, Sept. 8, from 1 to 4 p.m.
Children and adults - $5
Children under age 3 - Free

Kidzu Children's Museum, in Chapel Hill
Sunday, Sept. 9, from, 1 to 5 p.m.
Free

Marbles Kids Museum, in Raleigh
Tuesday, Sept. 11, from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. (Sessions run from 10:30 a.m. to noon, and from  1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.)
Children and adults - $5
Children under age 1 – Free

Nominate Your Library!
This summer, LEGO DUPLO and the Association of Library Services to Children kicked off a national program that lets parents support their local libraries by nominating them to receive special recognition.  Visit readbuildplay.com to nominate your local library through Oct. 1, 2012. The most nominated library in the "Read! Build! Play!" project will receive $5,000 for books and supplies, and the top 200 libraries get LEGO DUPLO Read! Build! Play! toolkits with preschool books and LEGO bricks.

Looking for Fresh Ideas for Playtime at Home?
