…and it will be over by 11:05 AM, so come early. As always, the Easter bunny will distribute many hundreds of eggs filled with chocolates, poems and knock-knock jokes. There will be delicious refreshments, warm coffee and cool lemonade after the hunt.

FOSEL has already ordered good weather and hope it will be delivered in time. We have baskets for those who can’t find their own from last year. We expect the Area D4 police to be available, as they always have been, for those crossing Tremont Street.

There will be a separate area cordoned off for the very young so they won’t be crushed by their enthusiastic and experienced older hunter colleagues. For those whose naps ran a bit late, the Easter bunny will have some extra eggs reserved especially for you..

A team of Boston Medical Center pediatricians will be at the South End library to offer advice and suggestions in two interactive programs for parents and children. The first one-hour program will take place on Tuesday, October 23, at 6:30 PM, and center on literacy, reading together, and screen time for the young and very young. The second will take place on Tuesday, November 29 at 6:30 PM, and focus on oral health for toddlers and tweens.

Parents can share concerns about child-rearing in a supportive environment with guidance from three top-notch local pediatricians. There will be space for play and crafts during the program. Teachers, parents, caregivers and grandparents are all welcome. For further information, contact head librarian, Anne Smart, at 617 536-8241 or at asmart@bpl.org.

The next South End Library Easter Egg Hunt will take place, rain or shine (well...if it's a Nor'easter we might reconsider) in Library Park on April 1 between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM. In reality, it will be over by 11:03 AM as the crowd of children that breaks through the fence at 11:00 AM sharp is primed for the hunt, as the image above attests.

There will be more than 1,500 eggs filled with chocolate eggs, poems and knock-knock jokes (after all, we are a library Friends group), and delicious baked goods, coffee and lemonade will be available for all. We will have sectioned of a safe space for the defenseless very young children who would otherwise be run over by their older and intensely focused friends. The Easter Bunny has been convinced to do it one more time and apparently can't wait for the Hunt: it is the Bunny's favorite event of the year.

We have some free baskets for those who can't find the ones from last year. They can be taken home and do not have to be returned. As always, we request and usually receive a police presence from our officers at Area D4. The gates will be closed until the countdown at 10:59:30 AM. Balloons decorating the fences can be taken home as well.

This is usually the first event after the New England winter season has ended, and likely the last in Library Park as it is now constituted. If the weather gods are with us, it should be a lovely day, and a good farewell to the old and tired park. Next year in...well, maybe not Jerusalem but certainly in a better green space at the corner of Tremont Street and Rutland Square.
