Groundhog Day Party
Six more weeks of winter or an early spring—let’s celebrate either way!
Whether the groundhog sees his shadow and we get a prediction of six more weeks of winter or a cloudy day serves as a harbinger of spring, we’ll get our party on! Bring the whole family to enjoy fun and engaging activity stations that will help you learn more about groundhogs and this unusual holiday. Plus, grown-ups and kids alike can let loose and get a little silly in our photo booth!
Station 1: Shadow Stage
Stop by our Shadow Stage to cast your own shadows—and learn a bit about how shadows work.
Station 2: Groundhog Shadow Craft
Come color your own groundhog. Don’t forget to add his shadow! We’ll show you how.
Station 3: Groundhog Day Photo Booth
Get in the groundhog spirit! Ham it up and pose for photos using a variety of fun props we’ll provide.
Station 4: Library Seek & Find
Discover fun facts about groundhogs and this annual celebration as you go on an easy scavenger hunt in the library! Complete the hunt during the program for a chance to win a $10 Walmart gift card.
Psst… Don’t forget to stop by Hillview Branch Library BEFORE Groundhog Day to make your predictions! Will Punxsutawney Phil see his shadow and predict 6 more weeks of winter weather, or will we get an early spring? Cast your vote from Monday, January 28th to Friday, February 1st. Correct predictions will be entered in a drawing for a $10 Walmart gift card!
For all ages. Just drop in!
