HURON — What is gooey and has a national holiday named after it? S’mores!
The most popular campfire treat is recognized each year on Aug. 10 during National S’mores Day. Millions across the United States love this delicious, gooey treat and the Huron Public Library is joining the celebration.
The public is invited to come make a S’more at the library anytime between 3 and 5:30 p.m. on Thursday.
Patrons of all ages will get to toast their own marshmallows and place it between graham crackers with plenty of chocolate bars to accompany it. They can also register to win a Kalorik Three-In-One Chocolate Fondue, Gummy, S’mores and Marshmallow Treat Maker.
On Monday, Aug. 21, patrons are invited to join the library staff in observing the solar eclipse in Campbell Park. Free solar eclipse sunglasses and information sheets will be given to the first 200 patrons beginning at 11 am. Huron will experience an 85 to 90 percent eclipse. The eclipse begins around 11:30 a.m. and ends about 2:30 pm. Patrons of all ages are welcome to attend.
