Library's Autumn Fest to offer fun for the family

CLINTON — The Clinton Public Library is inviting the community to take part in fall fun during its Autumn Fest this Saturday.

The event is free and open to the public and runs from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Clinton Public Library.

“It’s going to be great family fun with a lot of activities and a lot of variety,” adult programming librarian Holly Youngquist said. “It’s also a chance to learn about the library. The possibilities of where the library’s going in the future are really exciting.”

The event is also a thank you to the community for supporting the library, Assistant Director Beth Mosher said.

Library staff have planned a day of family friendly fun that will take place outside and inside. The fest kicks off with a street fair that includes face painting, sidewalk chalk art, carnival games, playground games and some handmade games will run from 10:30 to noon.

Games include duck, duck, goose, a penny toss, a Lego maze and a parachute among other fun activities.

Also starting at 10:30 a.m., artist Sarah Haas will set up her mobile stage that she lives, travels and performs in that was built mostly from reclaimed materials.

Haas will talk about her art tour and residents from the sustainable living community, moonCatlife, which is outside of Fulton, Ill., will share talk about their community before Haas’s performance starts at 11:30 a.m.

From noon to 1:30 p.m. the Clinton County Cattlemen’s Association will sell a hamburger, chips and bottled water meal for $2.

The Clinton High School drumline will hold a bake sale at the same time for those who want to support them and have some dessert with their meal.

Live music will accompany the fun as Iowa band One Brick Shy performs from noon to 2 p.m.
