We are partnering with the Morrisville Fire Department to bring an event of “egg-y” proportions!  Join us for our Great Egg Drop on Friday October 13 at 6:30pm at the Morrisville Fire House!  Can you create a “protective container” to house a raw egg?  We will place a raw egg in your creation and the firefighters will drop if from the raised ladder truck (so be sure to bring whatever is needed to close your creation that evening)!  Put your thinking caps on and protect your egg at all costs!  All adults and kids are welcome to participate!  If you make it through the first round, you move on to the second round and we continue until only one egg is left not broken!  The winner will receive a Kindle Fire!  There will be fire safety activities and fun stuff to do for adults and children that evening too!  Great event for the entire family!  So call or stop into the library and sign up to create your “egg-tastic” safe container starting September 20!
