Spring Break at the Huntsville Public Library

Huntsville families had a blast learning and participating in scientific group challenges at the Yuck Game Show over Spring Break. We would like to give a special thanks to the Friends of the Huntsville Public Library for sponsoring the program.

Look at all of the fun families had at the library’s finger painting program during Spring Break!
