Bring the whole family to the library for our annual Family Fun Day celebration! Kids of all ages (and their grown-ups, too!) will enjoy meeting animals from Sam’s Petting Zoo and exploring science stations provided by the Georgia Youth Science and Technology Center. We’ll also have face painting by Mrs. Doodlebug, arts & crafts, fun outdoor activities including bubbles, hula hoops and sidewalk chalk, and more! Once we’ve played all morning, stick around for a special puppet show about Thomas Edison, Electricity, performed by The Red Herring Puppets, funded by the Athens Puppet Theater Company - Laura Cobb Hutchins Paddock Endowment. Don’t miss this exciting event, sponsored by the Friends of Athens-Clarke County Library!
