Preschool Story Time: Peter Cottontail Day and Egg Hunt with author Robert L. Forbes
March 24, 2016 –
Celebrate spring during a special story time with children’s author Robert L. Forbes in the Philip Hulitar Sculpture Garden and Pannill Pavilion. Afterward, children age 4 and younger are invited to hunt for thousands of eggs in the sculpture garden. Be sure to bring a basket! As in previous years, due to the popularity of this event, children will be instructed on the maximum number of eggs they may collect. This allows all children (walkers, runners, crawlers and the littlest babies) to participate in the program. Following the egg hunt, families have the opportunity to meet Mr. Forbes and purchase signed copies of his books. The Children’s Library would like to thank Boy Scout Troop 141 for volunteering to hide the Easter eggs.
Note, there will be no arts and crafts activity on this day. In the event of rain this program will be canceled. No buses permitted.
Preschool Story Time is for children 4 years of age and younger, and is offered Mondays and Thursdays, October through April. An arts and crafts activity will follow each story time unless otherwise noted.
The Children’s Library is located on the second floor of the John E. Rovensky Building. Children are invited to borrow books, use computers and enjoy special event programs at no charge. In addition, the Mary Alice Fortin Children’s Art Gallery, located within the library, features exhibitions of special interest to young people throughout the year. Children of all ages, newborn through 17, must always be chaperoned by an adult while in the library.
