Cazenovia Public Library Presents Ancient Egypt Workshop for Children

The Cazenovia Public Library invites young Egyptologists (ages 8-14) to travel back in time to learn about the lives and after-lives of the Ancient Egyptians. Children’s Program Coordinator Jenna Wright Martin and Museum Educators Pat Hill and Julia Shotzberger will present the program “Exploring Ancient Egypt” on Monday, October 8 at 1:30 pm in the Community Room.

The program will begin with a fascinating video introduction to Ancient Egyptian civilization and culture. Participants will then tour the Library’s Egyptian Room to learn about the life and death of Cazenovia’s own mummy, Hen. The program will conclude with a fun, hands-on workshop featuring six activity stations. Through these interactive experiences, children will learn to write their names in hieroglyphics, create Egyptian-style art, design and decorate burial masks, mummify an apple, and more! Registration is requested. Call or stop by the Library to reserve a spot.

To learn more about the mummy Hen, head back to the Library at 7:00 pm for the premier of the documentary film The Mummy of Cazenovia.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Cazenovia Public Library. All events at the Cazenovia Public Library are free and open to the public. For more information, call (315) 655-9322 or visit
