You also won’t want to miss STEM Make & Take: Paper Airplane Challenge on Monday, March 5 at 4 p.m. We will provide the materials for you to design and decorate your own paper airplane. We will then test for the airplane that travels the farthest, can hit a bullseye, or can even do a loop!

We’ll be hosting an Egg Hunt at the Main Library on Thursday, March 29 at 11 a.m. Hop on over! Participants must check-in and receive the rules. Please arrive early, as space and supplies are limited. Hunt begins promptly at 11 a.m.
