The 6-week Pilot Lego Club has been very popular with children creating Lego constructions according to a different theme each week. Themes have included “something you can ride on”, “something you can use in outer space”, and “something you can live in”. http://ow.ly/i/CR1JC

The best things in life! Have a lovely weekend.
Have your say! The Western Australian Museum is calling for members of the public to share their thoughts about the literary works they think best reflect the spirit and place of Western Australia.
Submissions are now open and can be made via the WA Museum website: http://museum.wa.gov.au/wa-in-words.
Contributors are asked to submit the title and author of the work, and describe how it made them feel or think about WA.
“Submissions can be from novels, poems, theatre or songs, and it doesn’t matter if they’re by local, national or international writers,” Mr Coles said. http://ow.ly/i/CMSxM
It’s Library Lovers’ Day! We thought we’d share this lovely memory about a local family’s connection to our libraries. Thank you to Brendan Harris and his grandma, Mrs Hilda Lindsay who is 100 years old and a life-long library member for this quote: “The library has been a culmination of memories in my adulthood, from loaning video and audio books for my pre-dementia grandmother, to reference books for my studies and caring duties”. http://ow.ly/i/CML2l
