19th Annual EGG HUNT!


Kids of all ages are invited to the Library’s egg hunt, sponsored by the Friends of the Library. Children will search the grounds for colorful eggs, and a chance to win prizes!

We do a nice, friendly hunt with big kids on one lawn and littles on another, and all participants collect the same number of eggs, so no one misses out. Kids who have food allergies can swap for non-candy eggs.

Please bring your own basket!

In case of rain, this program will take place the following Saturday, April 7th. Please call the library at 583-3408 x3 for questions about weather.
