Let's Go Play with LEGOs

Everyone needs a stress relief; but with as many options as there are people, you could end up needing something to relieve the stress of trying to find the perfect stress relief. We would like to suggest you take the Boise Public Library up on its offer to play with LEGOS. Not only can playing with LEGOs be a distraction from the responsibilities of adulthood, being creative is good for you. In the 1960s, Dr. Marian Diamond found that enriched environments have a positive effect on the brain's "ever-changing cerebral cortex." LEGOs provide opportunities for creativity, problem-solving, innovation and entertainment, and the Library is providing the opportunity, the location and the LEGOs. A stress-relieving activity for adults in an enriched environment: the Library may have just redefined "happy hour."
