Egg-A-Palooza

Join us for our second annual Egg-A-Palooza! The Easter Bunny will be visiting the Bensenville Library and hiding prize filled eggs in the Library’s Garden of Knowledge. Children between the ages of 1 and 8 years old are invited to bring their own basket and join us for an Easter egg hunt. We will have two entry times into the egg hunt:

2:00 to 2:15 p.m.  –  1 to 3 year old Egg Hunt 

2:30 to 2:45 p.m.  –  4 to 8 year old Egg Hunt

While you wait for your group to enter the hunt, our family craft room will be open and we will have several amazing projects for you to complete. Don’t forget to bring your camera as the Easter Bunny will be available for kids to meet and have their photo taken with. Registration is not required to attend this program, but space is limited. Tickets for the event will be handed out 30 minutes before the start of the program. NOTE: If there is inclement weather the egg hunt will be moved indoors.
