ECC Library and Scenic Regional Library (SRL) invites community members of all ages to their annual “Big Machines” event on Saturday, Sept. 24 from 10 a.m. – noon in ECC’s east parking lot. The free event will showcase bulldozers, cement mixer, lumber trucks, emergency vehicles and more.
ECC Library Services Director Lisa Farrell expects another large crowd this year. “The big hit last year was the sewer truck,” Farrell said. “Kids had a blast interacting with the truck’s camera that was in the drainage system.”
New to the event this year will be a passport that acts as a check list with all showcased vehicles. Passports will be provided for spectators who wish to mark-off vehicles as they make their way around the parking lot.
“Big Machines” won’t be the only attraction at ECC. The SRL is bringing the library to the event with their bookmobile. Visitors are welcome to walk through the library-on-wheels and check-out books with a valid library card.
Friends of the Library will sell popcorn, hot dogs and drinks, and 99.9 KFAV FM will provide music. ECC students will help assist children and offer face painting.
SRL encourages visitors to bring an ID and proof of residency to sign up for a library card. Individuals with big or unusual vehicles may volunteer by contacting the Union Branch Library at (636) 583-3224 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
