Easter Egg Hunt ….

Easter Egg Hunt …

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.
