Clarksburg-Harrison Public Library Hosts Egg Hunt
CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — The Clarksburg-Harrison County Public Library held a free egg hunt for children up to 10 years old earlier today.
Over 5,000 eggs were filled with Easter candy and hidden on the first floor of the library. Each year the event is sponsored by the Clarksburg League for Service.
The space was divided into three different age groups made up of the 150 children registered for the hunt.
Erica Perry, children’s librarian at the Clarksburg-Harrison Public Library, said, “I love hosting community events with the library because it draws people in. They can also see the kind of resources we have here at the library. I just appreciate that the families have come out and supported this for today, and knowing that we haven’t been able to do this for three years, it warms my heart. “
Terry Brewer, the first vice president of the Clarksburg League for Service, said, “We get all the eggs and all the candy, and have work parties where we stuff them, and we haul them in our cars to that we finally have them here. to the library to hunt. We love to serve in our community and this is a way that seems to bring joy.“
All the children who hunted the eggs left with a snack, an Easter cookie and a box of juice.
