National Night Out/Touch-A-Truck 2015

Tue, 08/04/2015 - 6:00pm

Celebrate National Night Out at the library with our third annual Touch a Truck event.

This annual event offers fun for the entire family with local heroes, activities, food and plenty of vehicles to climb, touch, sit in, and honk! Children can visit with two tow trucks, a fire engine, an ambulance, a CATA bus and Trolley, a DPW recycling truck, bucket truck, and snow plow, ELPD police cars and motorcycles, equestrian deputies, a K-9 officer and dog, and community motorcycle enthusiasts. The vehicle drivers will answer questions and help children interact with all vehicles, WKAR's Curious Crew will be offering interactive science activities, and many safety-oriented community organizations will be joining us!

The focus of National Night Out/Touch-A-Truck is community safety and awareness. Come dressed in your superhero outfit to participate in our Super Hero Obstacle Course and enjoy this all-ages community-building event!

Construction crews have been working on Abbot road so please check for road closure construction updates at http://www.elpl.org/events/abbot-road-closure before planning your trip to the library.

The library and the library parking lot will be closed starting at 5 pm to prepare for this event.  Please plan to park at Hannah Community Center or  All Saints Episcopal Church.  The library parking lot will reopen following the event, however the building will remain closed until the library opens at 10 am on Wednesday, August 5.
