May 25th marked the 30th birthday of Elmer the Elephant, a popular children's book character about a patchwork elephant. The McCracken County Public Library hosted an "Elmer Day" event, the only one listed outside of Europe!
Education Director Becky Glasby led an Elmer Day craft activity. Participants were able to make their own patchwork elephants using squares of quilting fabric.
The museum and library collaborated last fall to create a story walk along the museum's sidewalk with pages from "Elmer's Special Day."
