Editor's Note: The Friends are able to help fund many events, programs and equipment needs of the Cascade Branch of KDL thanks to the donation of time, money and used books from members of the community. Here is just one of the ways that your generosity has been put to work in recent months. These activities are sponsored in whole or in part by the Friends.
Cascade Library had a Spring Break bash on April 5 with the Dino Dig program, which attracted more than 600 kids and parents who enjoyed the crafts, scavenger hunt, and reptiles. The Friends financial support played a huge part in making the program an amazing family experience, according to Leigh Verburg, branch outreach and programming specialist.
“Without the support of the Friends, we never would have been able to get reptiles or the prize for the scavenger hunt,” she said. “One little girl told us that, ‘This was better than the unicorn party!’”
Currently, the library is preparing for summer and all the wonder that it brings. Verburg said regular storytimes will be paused in May to prepare to go into the schools to promote reading during the summer break.
“Our first big summer kickoff event will be June 9, a “Touch-a-Truck” event,” she said. “This annual event is great for kids to see, up close, many of the emergency vehicles in a calm and non-stressful environment while also showcasing all the amazing community workers and first responders that keep our community running. Join us this summer for lots of fun and learning!”
More than 600 people came out for the inaugural "Dino Dig" event.
