Help Hancock welcome in the summer solstice by making fairy and gnome homes to display on the library lawn and grounds! Create a fairy house or gnome home at your own house, bring it to the Hancock Town Library to leave on display from June 18 to 22, then come back with your family to walk the grounds and see all the bewitching houses that have been created for the little folk. All ages are welcome to participate, and prizes will be given to all who enter. Be sure to make your home out of natural and rain-resistant materials.
