Masked, but IN-PERSON Egg Hunt! We are asking that people arrive a different time throughout the day so as to keep social distancing less difficult. Come anytime up until 4 pm on this Saturday — we will replenish goodies so no one is left with an empty basket. Scoville staff will “hide” candy and toy-filled eggs as well as a batch of painted and decorated wood and ceramic eggs. Please do not take more wooden eggs than you have have decorated, and four candy/toy eggs per child. Thanks for helping us to make this work.
Guess who is going to decorate the wooden eggs?
The plain eggs will be available for pick-up, along with paint if requested, starting Wednesday March 17. We ask that the eggs be returned, decorated, to the library by Friday, March 26. They will be hidden on library grounds and up and down the rail trail behind the library (just up to Salmon Kill Rd.) on March 27th, for our annual, slightly tweaked, Egg Hunt.
We are inspired to paint and give away wooden eggs by a local anonymous artist who calls herself “The Guerilla Bunny.”

Every Easter, since 2008, in Berkshire County, MA. the Guerilla Bunny has hidden exquisitely hand painted eggs for the community to find. Each hand blown egg takes between 2 and 10 hours to paint, using the thinnest brush available. This gem of a film is about life, fragility, art as a healing force and one woman’s project to create magic in a time when magic felt very far away.
