The Hannibal Free Public Library will hold an egg hunt on Saturday, April 6.

Visiting the library is about to get a little more eggciting: Hannibal Free Public Library will hold an egg hunt on Saturday, April 6. The doors will open at 9 a.m., and the egg hunt will begin promptly at 9:15 a.m. This event is free and open to the public. All children and babies are welcome to attend. Participants will find candy, stickers, and some larger prizes inside their eggs. Books will also be given as prizes.

“We are taking over the entire building for this ‘eggcellent’ event! That means three floors covered in over 2,000 eggs!” Assistant Library Director Caitlin Greathouse said. “It is our hope that from these special events, children in the community will come to see the library as a fun place to be as well as a useful resource! We ask that children be accompanied with an adult, and we hope that the kids are as ‘eggcited’ as we are!

“Teens, do not think we have forgotten about you. A special teen egg hunt will take place on Monday, April 8, at Hannibal Free Public Library’s weekly Teen Night. This event takes place at 6 p.m., and the eggs will be hidden in ‘eggstra’ tricky places.”

The library will be open at 9 a.m. for egg-hunting only.  Regular library services will be available starting at 10 a.m. as usual.
