Have a Hoppin' Good Time at Edgerton's 12th Annual Frog Jumping Contest!
Every summer, we kick off our Summer Reading Program with a Frog Jumping Contest. This year marks our 12th year of the froggy fun!
This year, our contest will be held on Wednesday, June 1st at 10 a.m. We will have lots of fun and froggy-themed games, like the Bullfrog Long Jump, Froggy Kissing Booth, and the Tadpole Toss. Our main event will be the Frog Jumping Contest. Every participant will need to bring their own frog for this event.
Each year, staffers at North Oak create and present a puppet show to kick off the library's Summer Reading Program. Although the story lines vary, one thing that is constant year after year is our main character: Herman the dragon. Herman is usually up to some kind of adventure, and he is good at getting the audience excited about reading lots of great library books over the summer.
MCPL now has a new webpage for homeschool information (Homeschoolers @ the Library is the new name for Discovery Club). The webpage includes information on events and online resources. The Raytown Branch will host two events: Arctic Express November 10 and This Your New Year on December the 8th.
