A New GVSHP Family Program at the Jefferson Market Library, 425 6th Ave 

Turrets, gables, paper bags .. and a big orange splot? What is happening at the Jefferson Market Library? Join us for a fun filled family program, Sunday, October 22nd from 2-4 pm. Discover why Mr. Plumbean’s house looks like “all his dreams” as we read the beloved children’s classic,The Big Orange Splot. Then follow mysterious clues on a family scavenger hunt and head outside to explore the glorious Jefferson Market building. Modeled after a European castle, constructed as a courthouse, and transformed into a public library, this architectural treasure is 140 years old and like Mr. Plumbean’s house, it’s filled with surprises!  Finally, turn inspiration into a paper bag creation  - and your own architectural sensation. Art supplies and colorful splots will be provided! 

This is not a drop off program. CHILDREN MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT.
