Durham County Library ‘Peeps Show’ Is Back

In Durham, a sense of humor can go a long way - even for librarians.

The Durham County Library staff is using bunny and chick confections to shine a light on library services, programs and materials again this year, with the second annual DCL Peeps Show. Library fans are invited, once again, to vote for their favorite Peeps display.

DCL Peeps Show 2012 ‘peep-o-ramas’ include scenes from beloved children’s books, a Peeps-sized food truck rodeo, a marshmallow treat version of the popular television series ‘Downton Abbey’ and a peep behind the scenes of the library’s technology division.

Star-Bellied Peeps
The Library Peeps Show will be on display on Friday, March 30, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., and on Saturday, March 31, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Main Library Auditorium, 300 N. Roxboro Street. After the display closes, members of the public can friend the library on Facebook to vote for their favorite. The entry with the most “likes” earns the winning team a certificate and bragging rights. For more information about the Durham County Library Peeps Show, call 919-560-0151.

The Country Peep and the Little Gold Shoes
North Regional Library created a peep display based on The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes by DuBose Heyward.  The country bunny taught all of her children how to take care of their little home so well that she was awarded the coveted task of becoming an Easter Bunny and delivering a special egg to a sick child. The display depicts the bunny children at home working on their chores.

Star-Bellied Peeps
Southwest Regional Library Children’s unit’s peep diorama was inspired by Dr. Seuss’ The Sneetches. After paying the “fix-it-up chappy” Sylvester McMonkey McPeep two dollars, the plain-bellied peeps enter the “star-on machine” to become more fashionable “star-bellied peeps.”
