For everyone, those young or young at heart, January 28 is National Lego Day.
By Jonathan Ong
The Lego, first created by Ole Kirk Kristiansen in 1932, is now over 90 years old. However, National Lego Day on January 28 actually commemorates the day that the patent for the Lego was created on January 28, 1958. The Lego has had a long and storied history, being named “Toy of the Century” twice. Did you know that the name “Lego” comes from the Danish word “leg godt” which means “play well?”
To celebrate the occasion, the Altadena Library (Bob Lucas Branch) will be holding a Lego Day Celebration the afternoon before. Legos and Duplo blocks will be provided at this free drop-in event on January 27 from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm. No registration is required!
