Event Details

Join us at the library for an adult craft day featuring emu eggs! We will be learning about egg decorating traditions from around the world, including the traditional Australian aboriginal art form of dot painting, then using it to paint real emu eggs. This event will take place in the Library Auditorium on Monday, June 17 at 5 PM. Space is limited to 30 people due to the number of eggs available, and advance registration is required.
