As the days grow shorter, and a chill sets into the air, many people prepare for Halloween revelries.
Here at the library, we too enjoy celebrating this spooky holiday. Each library is decorated with creepy crawly insects, ghastly ghouls and ghosts, jack-o-lanterns, and more. But our revelries don’t stop there. We have many great events planned for Halloween. During Halloween, stop by one of our branches for the following activities:
