Activities: Nonprofit event

The Zelienople Area Public Library has started a recent Capital Campaign to build a small addition & parking lot on the property owned by the library. This property is on the south side of the current building and will add additional resources that the current building doesn’t have for patrons. A committee came together to put on an event never seen in Zelienople, the 1st ever Bed Bug Race. Teams of 5 will build a bed and race it thru an obstacle course on High Street between Spring Street & Beaver Street. This will be a fun & family-friendly event open to anyone 12 & up. We will award prizes for the best-decorated beds & fastest times thru the obstacle course. All proceeds will go to the Zelienople Area Public Library Capital Campaign so donations or sponsorships of any size will make a difference!
