Library clarifies there won't be snakes at their prom event after awkward typo

After spotting the typo in the printed ad, library staff thought people would understand it was a mistake but soon they were inundated with people asking about the snakes.

They posted an announcement on social media saying that unfortunately there wouldn’t be any snakes at the anti-prom event – but there would be a chance to hang out with them for the Teen De-Stressing Day: Reptile Hangout next month.

The post said: ‘ATTENTION – there will be no snakes at this Friday’s Anti Prom at the library. There was a typo in a local paper that said we will have snakes. We will have snacks. Snacks is what we will have.

‘Not to say we have anything against snakes. In fact, snaks will be at the library in May during the Teen De-Stressing Day: Reptile Hangout.’

They followed with an emoji summary – a snake and a cross on 12 April but a snake and a tick on 22 May.

But in a twist, after the post went viral, staff and students brought snake themed snacks and dressed up as reptiles for the occasion.

Snakes AND snacks sounds like the perfect combination.
