Hidden origami cranes still in the library….   Leave a comment

Although our Library After Dark Open House has come to a close, we still have dozens of origami paper cranes hidden around the library (I guess we were too good at finding hiding spots for them). If you find one, bring it to the Reference Desk– you can still claim your prize!
