The Dorris Van Doren Library had a fantastic time celebrating A.A. Milne's 136th birthday on January 18th. A.A. Milne was the creator of everyone's favorite silly old bear, Winnie the Pooh, and all his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. Over a hundred guests showed up on a Thursday afternoon to celebrate All Things Pooh!
While there was no Hunny for our guests to guzzle, there were delicious refreshments that would tempt even Heffalumps and Woozles.
There were also a variety of Winnie the Pooh crafts for our guests to try! Children created handpuppets of Pooh, Piglet, and Tigger. They also made a Hunny pots with clothespin bees!
Next Thursday, February 15th at 4pm we'll be honoring Norman Bridwell, the creator of another beloved character, Clifford the Big Red Dog. We have a lot of fun planned for that event, and we hope you'll come join us in the celebration!
