The Hammond Eastside Magnet Library was "Elf’d" this weekend. He tried to build a Christmas book tree, but it doesn’t quite measure up to the Pintrest standard. He also hit a 3rd grade classroom, sprinkling his magic dust everywhere, but at least he left some cookies for the teacher. Teachers have been asked to be especially vigilant this week, as no one knows who he will Elf next.
