Program Description

Children of all ages can stop by the Children's Services Desk between 10am-12pm on Monday, October 31, 2022, to participate in Halloween-themed activities and crafts (while supplies last).  Also, visit the bookmobile at Marie Litta Park (directly South of the Library) during this time for more Halloween activities. Costumes are welcome! 

Note: No registration is needed for this program. Children ages 5 and under may need assistance with activities and crafts. Supplies for activities and crafts will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis, while supplies last. Costumes are welcome! However, we will not have a parade due to construction. This program is not suitable for large groups. Pictures of children in their costumes will be taken by our staff and posted to the library's social media pages.
