Say it with Bricks

June 15, 2024August 30, 2024 EDT

Bird Library, 1st Floor

A selection of modern Lego interlocking brick sets

The Lego Group was started by Danish carpenter Ole Kirk Christiansen (1891-1958) in 1932 in Billund, Denmark. The name is derived from the Danish phrase “leg godt,” which translates as “play well.” As of 2015, over 600 billion Lego pieces have been manufactured. Franchises as diverse as Batman and Pokémon have been licensed as curated sets. Displayed in this exhibit are a variety of mostly franchise-based Lego sets, including the Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters, the owl from Harry Potter, and the Infinity Gauntlet from Marvel’s Infinity series. It has been graciously loaned from the library’s own Nick Olivieri, Access Services Manager with the Access and Resource Sharing department.
