More than 75 local Lego fanatics will square off in a two-day competition at the Boston Public Library for a full-time job as a “master model builder” for the soon-to-open Legoland Discovery Center Boston.

The “Brick Factor” contest will pick a winner based on skill and creativity demonstrated over multiple rounds of challenges using the popular construction toy, according to an event announcement.

The competition, free and open to public spectators, begins Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Changing Exhibit Room on the first floor of the library in Copley Square, the announcement said.

The event continues from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, with the winner scheduled to be announced at about 2:30 p.m.

The winner will receive a full-time salaried job as a “master model builder,” constructing new features, exhibitions and models at Legoland Discovery Center Boston, which is scheduled to open in May at the Assembly Row mixed-use development in Somerville, the announcement said.

The 44,000-square-foot indoor attraction will be geared toward children aged 3 to 10 and their families. There will be educational and interactive components and the center will feature millions of Legos, some built to resemble area landmarks. The center will staff about 100 people.
