Morgantown Public Library holds annual Easter egg hunt for community

Monongalia and Preston

Nearly 100 kids lined up at the Morgantown Public Library on Sunday for its annual Easter Egg Hunt. 

“Every year we do our indoor Easter egg hunt, so it’s so nice because no matter what the weather we still have our Easter egg hunt,” said Cathy Master with the Morgantown Public Library. 

Kids were divided into groups to have their turn at searching through the nest of eggs. 

“We try to control it as best we can and we have a special bunny nest for two and three-year-olds and four and five year olds,” Master continued. “The older children, we give them more of a challenge upstairs on the reference floor, but it’s just a lot of fun, and a great way to welcome spring.”

Live rabbits, chickens, and ducks were available  to pet along with crafts and Easter themed games. 

“Each Easter egg hunt has a grand prize, where they win their own special Easter egg basket with lots of goodies and books and we also have extra prizes that they can win too like cotton candy, movies, and different fun things,” said Master. 

Volunteers help to make the event possible. 

“We are old pros at this. We’ve done this for so many years that I spent three or four hours last night with my 14 year old son helping me set up for this, so it’s a lot of fun. It’s worth it because they really do enjoy themselves,” Masters said.
