Congratulations are in order for 17-year-old Sophie Randall, who is now officially our Egg Day Queen. You’ve got quite a legacy to uphold, and I have every confidence that you will succeed. Also, I’d like to thank all the people in the parade, the volunteers, the vendors, and the many other individuals that made last week’s Egg Day so spectacular. It was all so wonderful.

On Friday, the library invites teenagers to attend their Zines Workshop at 2 p.m. Zines (which have quite the history) are a fast and easy way to publish your ideas and thoughts.

Throughout all of Wednesday, July 3, children are welcome to drop by and search the library as part of their Dig It Up Scavenger Hunt: Ancient Egypt.
