1,277 Cranes

Cranes hand in the Creativity Park

Thanks to everyone who helped us reach our goal of 1,000 paper cranes!  Lots of children (and some adults) stopped by the Children’s Services desk to learn how to fold an origami crane.  The Teen Advisory Board folded cranes at its last meeting, and staff members made cranes on their lunch breaks.  Several families brought in bags of cranes they had made at home, including a string of cranes in red, white, and blue.  We counted 1,277 origami cranes in all.  If you haven’t seen them yet, please stop by before the end of the month!  You will see strings of cranes in all colors, sizes, and patterns hanging from the “trees” at the entrance to Children’s Services and in the Creativity Park.  After decorating the library, the cranes will take flight to Japan to join others of their species at the Peace Memorial.
