The long story:
LEGO® DUPLO®, in partnership with the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), want to support public libraries and thank them for the creative ways they have made summer reading fun for children. Until Oct. 15, 2013 ALSC and LEGO DUPLO invite the public to visit http://apps.facebook.com/duplo-prod/, enter their name, state and zip code to vote for their public library. In recognition of all of the meaningful programs, reading lists and activities that are carried out across the country, LEGO DUPLO will grant $5,000 to the public libraries in the neighborhood with the most entries. If there are multiple public libraries in the winning zip code the award money will be divided equally amongst them. Official rules are included.
ALSC and LEGO DUPLO have worked together through Read! Build! Play! to bring tools and resources to libraries to help them incorporate constructive play into their programming. “Through play, young children learn about their world. With this knowledge, they can understand books and stories once they begin to read,” said Starr Latronica, ALSC’s President.
