Don't let kids have all the fun! Teens and adults are invited to bring a flashlight and go on an egg hunt at the library. Lucky egg hunters may win $100 cash, chocolate, gift certificates to local businesses, and other great prizes. Cookies, Texas Road House rolls and bundtinis from Nothing Bundt Cakes will be served while participants wait for the hunt to begin. In case of inclement weather, the hunt will take place inside the library (still via flashlight!). The hunt doesn’t last long, so you will want to make sure to arrive on time!

This event is for ages 13+ only for the safety of participants.

This event is a fundraiser for teen programs at the library. Tickets will be available at the library and online starting March 15. Tickets are $10, and they are non-refundable.
