In the aftermath of the Easter celebrations, the Dundee Public Library were the recipients and benefactor of one thousand Easters Eggs,courtesy of the Town of Dundee . The Library staff headed by Julie Feagle , Superintendent for the facility, saw fit to organize an in-house Easter Egg Hunt for the children within the community, held at the library. Each child was allowed to search the library for the Easter Eggs, which were hidden throughout the facility. With a limit of fifteen eggs per child, this hunt provided a great deal of fun for the children, their guardians as well as the library staff on hand.
A dwindling supply of eggs are still available and the staff will now offer these to any child who attends the library in the coming days until the finals ones are given away. So with the end of this particular holiday event, the Dundee Public Library will continue with their array of programs being offered this calendar year.
