June 25, 2018, 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM @ Windham Public Library
Once again, the Windham Public Library's famous rubber chicken will help us celebrate our Summer Reading Programs! He will be hiding inside the library in a new spot each day. The young (and the young at heart) are encouraged to search for the chicken-- look but don't touch. If you find the chicken, let someone at the Circulation Desk know where you saw him and you'll receive a small treat. Watch for the poster in the stairwell which will announce where he is this week-- upstairs or downstairs. He will be hiding at the library through July 31st.
