A Lego replica of the Boston Public Library was unveiled Friday at the library.

The replica library will be on display there until Saturday, April 5, before it moves to its permanent home at Legoland Discovery Center Boston in Somerville’s Assembly Row.

The landmark won a contest to be featured in the center’s “miniland,” beating out such beloved spots as Faneuil Hall, Fenway Park and the Old State House, among others.

The 2.6-square-foot replica was built with about 6,350 Lego bricks. It took 47 hours to design and build.

The Boston Public Library is the first publicly supported free municipal library in the world.

The center opens Friday, May 23. Tickets are already on sale.

Very fitting that this exhibit is in Milford. The Boston Public Library is built of Milford Pink Granite as is the addition. It's considered one of the great architectural achievements in the Unites States. Go visit the Library on a trip to Boston-it's on Copley Square.
