On Wednesday, February 26th from 1pm to 3pm, in conjunction with the Sanbornton Recreation Department, the library hosted its first ever Winterfest event. They day was a rousing success, and a good time was had by all. Attendees enjoyed a snowshoe obstacle course filled with oddities like hula hoops and cones. Sanbornton Central School generously provided snowshoes for the event. After working their way through the obstacle course, kids could refuel with fresh S’mores grilled by Library Trustee Dave Adams, who faithfully manned the grill outside for two hours!
For those who were less fond of the cold, we had an indoor game room supplied with chess checkers, board games, cards, Uno, puzzles and a fun bookmark-making craft led by the Recreation Department. We also kept a well-stocked snack table in the downstairs cafe’ area for all of our patrons to enjoy, featuring apples, cookies and delicious hot cocoa.
The library would like to thank all of the volunteers that made this event possible, as well as everyone who attended. We hope to do it again next year! Want to see more photos from Winterfest? Check out our Facebook album!
