This June, Eric Carle’s beloved picture book The Very Hungry Caterpillar turns 50 years old.
That’s right! We’ve been enjoying a caterpillar’s very busy month for nearly half of a century. And we’re hosting a pair of programs at Mentor Public Library to celebrate the book’s semicentennial.
First, we’ll celebrate with crafts and a story at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, June 3, at our Lake Branch.
Then, we’ll have a special obstacle course at 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 6, at our Main Branch. Kids (ages three to eight) will help their caterpillar through our course and get a tasty treat at the end.
