Laffs and Thrills at Roosevelt Branch Library’s Captain Underpants Party

The Roosevelt branch library is developing a wonderful tradition of having great parties. On Saturday they had a Captain Underpants Epic First Party. Anyone familiar with Captain Underpants knows that the books are about friends, imagination and a hefty dose of potty humor. The party was right on par with its theme. Kids were able to take part in several activities including building a toilet paper tower and staring into the 3D Hypno ring, just to name a few. Event coordinator Kelly Merrell says the event was a lot of fun to plan and has been in the works since November. “We had about 130 people join us which is pretty good for a cold Saturday,” shares Merrell. “We had families engaging together and having fun.” The Roosevelt branch library has gained a reputation as a great community resource for family events and special parties based on popular literature. Librarian Stephen Moon and his family of course added to the party by dressing up as iconic characters from the Captain Underpants world and interacting with the enthusiastic party guests.
