Noah’s Ark Workshop

On Friday, July 10, Elgin Public Library held a Noah’s Ark Workshop as a culminating activity for Summer Reading. We had 15 children participating. During the workshop, the children were read a story by Kimberly Young, then they brought their plush character to life by hand-stuffing it and wishing on a star. Kimberly Young finished the time with another story. Treats were then served. Everyone had a fun time!
