Lego Competition - Winners

Well, we had a truly fun and creative time, with our build your dream Library Lego Club.

The competition was stiff and the entries were amazing!

 Everyone did a fantastic job!

Alas, our job was hard. After much deliberation, we decided in two deserved winners:

SOPHIA


What a forward thinking, dynamic and exciting entry!  Sophia created a Mobile Library driven by what can only be described as, "One Cool Dude".  However, Sophia also understood the importance of carbon offsetting and planted a beautiful conifer in the Mobile Libraries boot.  Brilliant work Sophia!

BLAKE


Blake really hit the mark here.  A bespoke Library that oozes style, colour and sophistication.  Careful attention to detail and a focus on Library security, proved a winner.  We are were all suitably impressed in the Library and encourage Blake to seek a career in engineering.
