National Library Week-Libraries Transform
National Library Week is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries, librarians, and to promote library use and support. In honor of celebrating National Library week Muhlenberg Community Library is giving back to the community by hosting a Spring Egg Hunt. The Spring Egg Hunt corresponds with National Library week’s theme, “Libraries Transform”. The egg hunt will take place all week. The eggs will be filled with prizes and will be scattered all over the library, in every high or low area as well as in every nook and cranny. In order to participate, we ask that an adult accompany children under 10 years of age. We ask that everyone please avoid disruptive behavior, such as yelling or running.
