Starting Monday, Feb. 21, we’ll have special guests – little chicken eggs that are getting ready to hatch – in the children’s department at our Main Branch. We’ll have an incubator set up and families may even get to see the eggs as they hatch.

They’re expected to hatch by March 14. Once the eggs are almost ready, you ‘ll be able to watch the Hatch Cam on our Twitch channel. After hatching, the chicks will live at our Main Branch for a week before heading onto their forever home.

Additionally, families can learn all about chicks and eggs during a program we’re hosting with Jess Nestor from Meyer Hatchery at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 3, at our Main Branch. Nestor will talk about the process of chicken egg hatching and answer any questions kids may have about what comes first. Registration is required. Sign up online or by calling us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 3.
