Over 40 children and 20 adults attended the Balloon Animal Adventures program sponsored by the Elgin Public Library. This program combined animal education with the fun and silliness of balloons. Brought to life by Peter and Penelope, this program required over 4 hours of work and more than 150 balloons to make the 9 animals they shared with the audience. Believing they were real, Peter and Penelope kept the kids engaged and entertained. The children went home with an adopted balloon animal while the animals from the program adopted the library. They are waiting for you to stop in at the library and say hi!
