Hoppy Spring!

Bunny Ears

Hoppy spring from the Marketing & Programming Department at Davenport Public Library.  After a brutal winter with wind chill temperatures of -50 degrees Fahrenheit or worse, we couldn’t contain our excitement about spring temperatures any longer.  Clearly bunny ears were in order.  Thanks to everyone who has participated in booksecret.  We hope to see more of you during the seasons to come.
