After storytime, eventgoers put their newly learned skills to the test with an upcycled craft activity, visited community partner tables, and took photos with Rocky along with Athens’ mini trash truck Mighty Mike, a lid flipper Jeep, and a brand-new collection vehicle.
“Athens brought out all the stops for our Sustainable Storytime,” said Library Services Manager Anita Torres. “From Rocky the Recycling Raccoon to Mighty Mike, kids and families had endless opportunities for fun.”
Athens also had a table of their own where residents learned about proper waste sorting, received free compost and seed packets, and had the opportunity to enter a contest to win a free mini-Athens collection truck. The event was joyous for the whole family and is just the first of many community outings with Athens.
“The storytime event with Athens has been in the works for quite some time,” said Anita. “The families in attendance had a really great time and we can’t wait to partner with Athens again for future events.”
