Stop by the front desk to get a piece of paper featuring 12 different eggs with pictures from around our library. First you will need to find where each picture was taken.

In a print shop, on equipment once owned by Benjamin Franklin, the first publication of The Saturday Evening Post was on August 4, 1821, in Philadelphia, PA. What started out as a four-page weekly newspaper would turn into a nationally recognized magazine. This publication has informed its readers of the events of the Civil War to Covid-19. As their mission states, “Celebrating America, Past, Present, and Future”, they will continue to report what good is happening around us. Come check out this legendary magazine at MML.
