Flying Monkeys-can you transform our monkeys to flying minions of the wicked witch?
Design shoes that take you home, sequins not required!

Design a Home for Toto (his basket is getting uncomfortable)

You can also color a horse of a different color, make your own Emerald City glasses, a witch’s broom goodie bag, take part in a Wizard of Oz gallery scavenger hunt, and join Anne Pott, Children’s Librarian from Herrick District Library as she reads passages from L. Frank Baum’s book, The Wizard of Oz. Come as your favorite Wizard of Oz character for our costume contest, and enjoy photo-ops, door prizes, and of course…cake!
