Description: 
We held a Pre-Father's Day casual event at the Library. Using donated LEGO (we held an event previously that we put a call out for LEGO, and we have two big buckets of it now), we encouraged kids to bring their favourite builder helper, in case they weren't able to bring a father figure the day of the event. We provided Juice and cookies and set out the LEGO at the tables in our Junior section and let the groups guide their own LEGO projects.

Evaluation
What were the goals/objectives of your program?: 
To present a casual program that would bring dads into the Library with their kids.
Highlights - what worked well?: 
The casual setting, with little structure the groups seemed to enjoy their time together.
What would you change about this program?: 
The weather was really nice that day, we didn't have as high of numbers as we were hoping for. Next year we may try for an outdoor event.
