Mardi Gras Celebration @ MPL

Everyone needs a Mardi Gras mask!

We're all recovering from our very successful Mardi Gras Celebration at the Morgantown Branch! Whew! We were happy to provide more than 150 patrons with nearly 20 stations of crafts, games, and activities, along with a jazz trio and our very special Mardi Gras Cafe featuring Louisiana fare. What a great way to spend a Saturday!

WVU students volunteer by bringing their jazz trio to the library for Mardi Gras

This event wouldn't have come together without the help of more than 35 volunteers: thank you so much for the generosity of your time and energy. Can I just say that Ms. Joan is a saint?
Also, a big thanks to the many local restaurants that donated food so that the kids could try Cajun cuisine. These included Nonna's bakery, Texas Roadhouse, Maxwell's (which has the best bread pudding ever!), The Glasshouse Grille, Wong's Wok, and the home cooking of many kind Service League of Morgantown Ladies. Merci beaucoup!
Here are some other upcoming events* at the MPL
  • Paper Airplanes: Super Fliers. March 8, 2 p.m. Elementary aged kids are invited to come to the library at 2 p.m. on March 8 to attend our super Fliers program. Learn about how airplanes fly, practice making paper airplanes, then participate in a competition to see who has the best paper airplane design!

  • Fun & Games with Dr. Seuss. March 28, 11am. Play games, make oobleck, treat yourself to a green eggs and ham brunch, Meet the Cat in the Hat and Thing 1 and Thing 2 and much more!
*These events are located at the Morgantown Public Library (373 Spruce St., Downtown Morgantown)
