It's #nmplundercover Friday!!! (...we're a little excited.) For those who may not know, during this quarantine, we've been challenging patrons to take the #nmplundercover challenge and recreate the covers of their favorite books with family members or random household items. We've had some AMAZING entries (check them out HERE) and it's been so much fun that we wanted to dedicate one specific day of our National Library Week celebration to it. Our amazing director is starting us out strong with a absolutely flawless recreation of the book #GirlBoss. We don't even know who is who any more!
We're celebrating National Library Week virtually this year with fun, interactive daily challenges, and a chance to win an NMPL hoodie sweatshirt. Submit your entry using the hashtag #nmplundercover - we can't wait to see what you do!

So we all know LEGOs are pretty amazing. We've had a blast building all kinds of things out of them over the past few years of Open Lego Hour here at the library.

Taller than you? Higher than a piece of furniture? Have fun with it and tag us in your pics. We'd love to see what you come up with!
