Spring Victorian Tea success!

The Spring Victorian Tea last weekend was a huge success! Guests enjoyed light refreshments, music and entertainment. Hat contest winners Donna Martin and Kendra Walker received hanging flower baskets.

We would like to thank everyone who attended the tea and all of our sponsors and donors who helped make this event so wonderful! Many thanks to Sunshine Garden Center (flowers), Tony Jones (music), Linda Hawkins (entertainment), Miss Hoss’ Sweet Shop (food), the Muhlenberg County High School Culinary Arts class (food), Muhlenberg North Middle School Jr. Beta (servers) and of course the Greenville Tourism Commission and Friends of the Library for helping to sponsor the event.

Candyland was a huge success!

A classic game was brought to life last week at Central City Public Library.
Muhlenberg County Public Libraries hosted a special life-sized Candyland event for children up to 5th grade.
The event was put together by the Muhlenberg County Public Libraries Teen Advisory Board to give kids something to do during spring break. Thirty-seven kids showed up to play the game.
As each player moved around the huge gameboard, they passed special spaces featuring famous characters from the game. Characters gave treats to the players as they reached the special spaces. When each player reached the end of the game board, they met King Candy, who allowed them to choose a special treasure from his treasure box.
This was a fun event for everyone involved. We look forward to hosting similar events in the future!
