Mo Willems' Elephant and Piggie to Visit Lincoln City Libraries
Elephant and Piggie, characters in popular children's books by author Mo Willems, will visit Lincoln City Libraries (LCL) for several events in January. Children can meet the characters, receive stickers and bookmarks and participate in craft and coloring activities. The visits are free and open to the public, and no preregistration is required.
LCL is hosting the events to welcome children back to LCL's Library Learning Times program after the December break, and to promote the Elephant and Piggie book series, which was created for young children just starting to read independently. The schedule is as follows:
- Sunday, January 8 - 4 p.m., Bennett Martin Public Library, 136 S 14th Street
- Monday, January 9 - 10:30 a.m. and 6 p.m., Anderson Branch, 3635 Touzalin Avenue
