Halloween Story Times

DancingJackOLanterns_byJ4p4n
Tuesday, Oct. 28, story time with Sam Todd features “Go Away Big Green Monster” by Emberley. Come and enjoy a kid-friendly time especially for those 3 years and younger. We will make a very simple seasonal paper craft also.

Friday, Oct. 31, story time with Mrs. Lisa includes some wonderful non-scary Halloween books, including two new library additions: Monster Mash by David Catrow and Where's My Mummy by Carolyn Crimi.
You may even have a choice between two crafts!

Trick or Treat at the Library

Costumes Encouraged, but not required.  Photos will be taken – Beware of the “tricky camera”!

A safe, fun place to treat your family on Friday, Oct. 31, no tricks involved.  Drop by any time from 9am to 5:30pm and “trick or treat” any library staff person. We will all have treats (non-sugary ones) for all ages, even you adults. Plus, some staffers may even be in costume. Will you recognize us! Will we recognize you?
