"We thought it would be a fun way to celebrate Presidents' Day," says Becker Parkhurst-Strout, reference librarian at Schlessman, adding that while this is the inaugural edition of the nostalgic toy contest, the library hopes a nice turnout will lead to making it a yearly tradition. To entice potential builders, the winner of the Throwdown will receive a fresh-baked cherry pie, courtesy of the Shoppe.
Bring your building skills to the Schlessman Family Branch, 100 Poplar Street, at 10 a.m.; the contest is free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.denverlibrary.org or call 720-865-0000.
