Kids: Meet Hedgie in Bennington
Each spring, Bennington Free Library invites area public and private kindergarten classes to visit the Children’s Room for an introduction to the library. This year, April 4 to 8, kindergartners will be greeted by Jan Brett’s beloved character ‘Hedgie,’ the hedgehog. Children and teachers will listen to Hedgie stories, learn about the library, participate in fun activities and sign up for their very own library card. Children are eligible for a library card at the age of five. An after-school celebration for the public is also part of this special week on Wednesday, April 6, from 3:30 to 4:45 p.m. Bennington Free Library is located at 101 Silver Street, Bennington. Call 802-442-9051 to learn more.
