We're wasting no time this April to offer great programming! On Saturday, April 1, the library is partnering with the West Pikeland Township’s Parks and Recreation Committee for a Community Egg Hunt. The event will last from 10:30-11:30 and the egg hunt will begin at 11am sharp! Children of all ages are welcome to hunt for candy-filled eggs, get their picture taken with the Easter bunny, explore rescue vehicles, and plant flower seeds from the library’s Seed Connection. We hope to see you there!
The library is redecorating for Spring! Similar to our Winter Houses program on MLK Jr. Day, the library will have patrons create watercolor flowers to decorate the tops of our shelves! This drop-in event will take place in the afternoons during the week of April 3-7. During this week, the library will also be offering a few programs for children off from school during Easter break.
