Kelloggsville — The air was thick with anticipation as children prepared for a magical hour in a sea of suds.
Kent District Library’s Kelloggsville branch recently hosted a Birthday Bash to celebrate its fifth anniversary – and the foam machine was among the festive highlights. The branch. located on the north side of Kelloggsville High School, 4787 Division Ave. South, is run as a cooperative between Kelloggsville Public Schools, which provides the building and space, and the Kent District Library, which provides materials.
Along with celebrating its anniversary, the goal was to help increase awareness of the facility. Activities included a scavenger hunt, games, crafts, goodie bags, ice cream and a visit from the KDL Bookmobile.
“This is just fantastic,” said a parent as she walked out of the event with her children. “I am so happy to have something like this in our area.”
KDL Kelloggsville Branch Manager Librarian Cameron Holmes said he was “thrilled” with the turnout, noting people were having a good time.
The facility is closed during school hours but is open to the public from 3-6:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday.
