Elf on the Shelf is Back

Families aren’t the only ones having fun this year with the Elf on the Shelf.  The Kenton County Public Library is also hosting the seasonal visitor, where he will explore the different branches and play some games with library patrons. 

The first person to find the little Elf each day (don’t touch him, or else he will lose his magic!) will win a prize — it could be a cool bag or a gift card to a local coffee house! 

And this won’t be the only Elf running amok at the Library — the life-sized Elf is also back!  Follow him on the Library’s Twitter, Facebook and Instagram feeds where there will be even more surprise giveaways.  And share your pictures of your own Elf on the Shelf (or of you finding the Library’s Elf) on social media with the hashtag #LibraryElf.
