The sound of plastic Lego pieces rattling against each other filled the basement of the Coeur d’Alene Library on Saturday as dozens of kids turned out for the library’s ninth annual Lego-Rama. Some brought their completed entries for the design contest, then settled onto a large blue tarp in the middle of the floor covered with Lego pieces to create some more. The tables were filled with space stations, spaceships, space colonies and other works of the imagination in keeping with this year’s “Space: Building for the Future” theme. There were a few R2D2, storm trooper and Jedi knight figurines from the “Star Wars” movies thrown in the mix/Nina Culver, SR. More here.

Question: Did you kids play with Legos? Did you?
