Eggciting Hunt

Egg HuntApril showers did not stop the egg hunt fun from happening at the Northwest Egg HuntBranch Library today.  We learned from our book character friend Hoppy how to find eggs using our five senses and the kids heard a springtime favorite the Tale of Peter Rabbit.  They all made bunny baskets out of paper sacks, filled them from the pool of grass and searched for eggs up and down the book stacks.  Thanks everyone who helped out by donating supplies.
