KINSTON, N.C. (WITN) - The Neuse Regional Library in Kinston encourages young minds to dream big and build it even bigger during its Lego Club.

Children built castles, spaceships and everything in between Saturday afternoon.

The library hosts its Lego Club twice a month and says it helps inspire creativity and friendship as the kids play and build together.

The program started three years ago when the library received a grant from the American Library Association to start its Lego collection.

"We ended up with 10,000 Legos," Amber Hargett, head of children's services said. "These are not kits, these are just 10,000 Lego pieces that they can just come in and be creative and build their own thing. So its always awesome to just see what they build."

The club helps bring kids to the library who would not normally walk through its doors, Hargett said.

The next Lego Club will be held at 4 p.m. on February 1.
