Algoma Public Library was able to once again hold its Annual Easter Egg Hunt. Library staff hid many eggs (children were limited to five eggs, which held treats and small prizes), played some Easter-themed games, and had crafts available to work on either at the library or to take home with them.
The library had a wonderful turnout, with approximately 140 participants coming and going within an hour period. This was definitely more than had shown up to any of the library's previous Egg Hunt programs.
The library also held a Tea Party on Saturday, May 7. Prior to COVID, the Tea Party had been an annual event with the first held in May of 2016. Library staff invited young children, along with a parent or guardian, to a "Wonderland Tea" time.
Participants enjoyed tea, lemonade, and a few small treats. Participants talked about tea party etiquette and had fun decorating their own crowns.

Brown County Library's goal for its National Library Week story collection campaign was to collect 100 Brown County Library stories to then be shared on social media, with donors, and be the focal point of library initiative campaigns.
It also wanted to encourage patrons by giving them an incentive to win Brown County Library logoed items.
The library's multi-faceted campaign included:
Brown County Library's National Library Week story collection campaign collected 116 Brown County Library stories! Most of the stories were submitted through the online submission form and three random winners were picked and received a Brown County Library logoed tote bag and coffee cup.
The library is excited to start sharing these moving stories with its community. Its National Library Week story collection campaign was the most successful story collection campaign it's had so far. The library will use it as a building block for upcoming campaigns.
