Easter Egg Hunt – March 28th

Easter eggs

The Library and Friends of the Library will be hosting our annual Easter Egg Hunt Monday, March 28th, beginning at 3 pm.  Please have your children here by 2:55–the hunt takes about 5 minutes for the eggs to be gathered and we would surely hate to have the kids be late and miss out on any treats.  We ask that you open the eggs here and leave the empty eggs here so we can re-use them again for next year’s hunt.

The library will be closed Good Friday, March 25th, for the Easter holiday.
