Celebrating Easter

Easter: The Oxford dictionary defines Easter as the “most important and oldest festival of the Christian Church, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

It is held, in the Western Church, between March 21 and April 25, on the first Sunday, after the first full moon following the northern spring equinox. These celebrations include special church services, musicals and performances of the Passion play.

In a less religious tone, we encounter Easter egg hunts, Easter parades and new clothes to mark the holiday. So mix up a batch of dye and put those beautiful colored eggs in your Easter basket!

Remember, Friday's Storytime will not take place April 14. The library is closed in observance of Good Friday and Easter. Storytime will resume April 21.

At 6 p.m. Thursday, April 13, the Daughters of the American Revolution are are presenting a program for titled, “You're a Grand Old Flag,” in the Buchanan Room of the library.
