MARCH 2008

We tried out yet another library.  The Dolley Madison Library put us even closer to Tysons Corner LEGO store than previously.  The space was sizable and roomy, with plenty of tables.

Mike Crafts' linen Lego panels really transformed the room!

Everyone busy at their own tables.

Kunie and Tony looking over the 1st print issue of BrickJournal magazine.  Yay!
