HOUGHTON -- Grade school children are invited to join the fun in a Mitten Hunt at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 2, at the Portage Lake District Library.
Children will listen to classic stories about mittens, decorate mitten booklets to make their own mitten story, and search for hidden paper mittens throughout the library. When they find all the mittens, they will receive a mitten cookie to take home, decorate and eat. Gluten-free cookies will also be available for those who want them.
This event is sponsored by the Copper Country Reading Council and the Portage Lake District Library.
Library programs are free and open to all. For more information, you may call the library at 482-4570 or visit www.pldl.org.
