Festival of Trees

Stop by the fairgrounds this weekend for the Festival of Trees. The event is December 2 and 3 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Elgin Public Library has a tree with ornaments made by our own Lego League kids. Each ornament is made entirely from Legos. Come visit the Festival of Trees and support the Lego League kids.

Great Day for a Hayride

Elgin Public Library’s Hayride was held Sunday, November 5th. Approximately 56 people enjoyed the great weather and a ride around town.  Hayrides started at 2:00 and were given every half-hour.  The crowd also enjoyed S’mores, hot chocolate and board games at the library.  A huge thank you to Jerry Pelster for providing the tractor and hayrack as well as giving the rides. 

Story Time at the Kindergarten

On Thursday, October 12 and Tuesday, October 24, we visited the Kindergarten at Elgin Public and St. Boniface. The stories The Magic of Kindness by Heddy Clark and Pop-Up Haunted House by Sam Taplin were read. The Magic of Kindness takes them on an adventure with the cat witches as they learn about the magic of kindness. The Pop-Up Haunted House has spooky surprises on every page. Following the stories, the class made haunted houses.
