Partnering with Hawaii State Library To Build Honolulu Out of LEGO® Bricks

On Saturday, June 3rd, 2017, 318 keiki builders imagined big and created a LEGO® inspired city of Honolulu with their favorite Hawaii landmarks—both manmade and natural, using over 20,000 LEGO®!  The event was the kickoff to Hawaii State Library’s Summer Reading Program.

Hawaii’s First Lady Dawn Amano-Ige was amazed and tickled to add the LEGOR-esque version of her favorite President Abraham Lincoln landmark statue that proudly stands at the front of her alma mater Ewa Elementary School.

Here’s what the library had to say about the event:

Aloha, Wrenn!

You and the Play-Well TEKnologies team “Build a Better World” in all that you do! 

We deeply appreciate all of your efforts to help us build a successful kick-off event for the Hawaii State Public Library System’s 2017 Summer Reading Program.  It was truly awesome to witness a total of 318 keiki builders imagine big and create even bigger a LEGOR-inspired city with their favorite Hawaii landmarks—both manmade and natural! 

Your team’s super positive encouragement and warm demeanor combined with the 20,000 LEGOR bricks were a winning combination to building super-sized smiles from all the participants and their family members partaking in the build.

We received many glowing reviews at the event from keiki and their families who shared how much the enjoyed the activity.  Even Hawaii’s First Lady Dawn Amano-Ige was amazed and tickled to show off the LEGOResque version of her favorite President Abraham Lincoln that you created for her to add the landmark statue that proudly stands at the front of her alma mater Ewa Elementary School.

Again, thank you very much for helping our public libraries to kick off the summer of reading to “Build a Better World”.  

Mahalo!
