Jump start the Easter holiday at the Copperas Cove Library, where toddlers will be treated to a special Easter egg hunt during Toddler Time at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

For older kids ages 3-5, a Easter egg hunt will be held during Story Time at 10 a.m. Thursday.

Children should bring their own Easter baskets.

“I love that they do a Easter egg hunt for the kids here at the library,” said Tamara Jackson of Lampasas. “It’s a safe area, and I feel comfortable bringing my kids.”

Library Director Kevin Marsh said the seasonal activity is open to all children.

“We get a huge turnout anyway for Toddler Time and Story Time, so this is just an extra bonus,” he said.

A silk banner workshop will be held during the Medieval Arts/Science Night at 8 p.m. Wednesday. Patrons will learn how to make silk banners and about medieval times.

The monthly Book Club will convene at the library at 10 a.m. Wednesday. This month’s featured book is “The Bronze Horseman” by Pamela Simons. “The Bronze Horseman” is a romance novel written by Paullina Simons and the first book in the Bronze Horseman Trilogy.

The book begins on June 22, 1941, the day Russia enters World War II after Operation Barbarossa. Tatiana Metanova, nearly 17, meets the handsome and mysterious Red Army officer Alexander Belov. The relationship between Tatiana and Alexander develops against the backdrop of the Siege of Leningrad and in the face of many difficulties.

The library will be closed April 18 for Good Friday. It also will be closed April 19.

The library is at 501 S. Main St., Copperas Cove. Call 254.547.3826.

Have a wonderful and safe Easter holiday!
