Lego Version of BPL Visits Central Library in Copley Square

Posted on March 28th, 2014 by admin in General

A few months ago, Boston Public Library was voted the Boston landmark people most wanted to see built out of Legos (thank you again) at the soon-to-open LEGOLAND® Discovery Center in Somerville, Massachusetts. The historic McKim Building has since been constructed into a 75-pound Lego masterpiece. It was unveiled at the Central Library in Copley Sqaure on March 28 and remains on view in the Johnson Building lobby until Saturday, April 5. After that, it will move to the Discovery Center in Somerville for permanent display. This Lego creation took 47 hours to build and contains approximately 6,350 Lego bricks.

BPL_LegoThankYou4Thank you to all who voted for the Boston Public Library in the LEGO MINILAND® Facebook competition. The historic Central Library in Copley Square will have the very great — and very fun — honor of being constructed out of LEGO® bricks and displayed at LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Boston next spring.

From the news release: The Boston Public Library, the first publicly supported municipal library in the U.S., overwhelmingly won LEGOLAND® Discovery Center’s MINILAND® contest and will be immortalized in LEGO bricks alongside other Boston landmarks when the attraction opens in May at Assembly Row in Somerville.
