We celebrate the 50th anniversary of Eric Carle’s beloved picture book The Very Hungry Caterpillar with an obstacle course and crafts last week at our library.
For half of a century, librarians (and families) have read along as a tiny caterpillar eats his way through a smorgasbord and transforms into a butterfly.
Kids reenacted the caterpillar’s journey with an obstacle course that wound through our Main Branch’s lawn.
Speaking of anniversaries, you can also join us for our 200th anniversary party at 6 p.m. on Friday, July 12, on the Main Branch lawn. Help make a community mosaic of Mentor with Gail Christofferson of Animal House Glass.
Also, Tom Todd, the Amazing One Man Band, will perform from 6 to 7 pm. Bring your lawn chairs or blankets, sit back and enjoy a little bit of Jimmy Buffett. We will also have cake and contests. All are welcome and no registration is required for our party.
