SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The Sevier County Library System has made it into the top 200 libraries and received a special kit to help encourage kids to read.

During the summer, community members and visitors were asked to nominate the library for a chance to win the extra money using LEGO and DUPLO building blocks.

The most nominated library in the "Read! Build! Play!" project received $5,000 for books and supplies. The Sevier County Public Library System ended up in the top 200 libraries and received a special LEGO DUPLO Read! Build! Play! toolkit. The toolkit is full of cutting edge, early literacy programming that combines preschool books with a versatile collection of LEGO and DUPLO bricks. Voting ended on October 1st, 2012 and at that time, SCPLS ranked in the top 25! The SCPLS extends a huge THANKS SO MUCH to our community who continued to vote so we could win this great LEGO DUPLO literacy programming toolkit!!!

Currently, the King Family Library of the Sevier County Public Library System (SCPLS) hosts a monthly story time program for families called LEGO Family Story Time. The next LEGO Club Story Time is Monday, November 19 at 5:30PM at the King Family Library, 408 High Street, Sevierville.
