Halloween at the library

The library ladies are gearing up for Halloween and have lots of cool hands-on activities for patrons. Make an origami bat or bat finger puppet, decorate a spider with glitter and googly eyes, and color in a mask for Day of the Dead.

There’s also a poster-sized “community coloring page” and markers so everyone can add a bit of color, as well as individual coloring pages and color-it-yourself bookmarks.

Be sure to check the shelves for tales about monsters, ghost stories, and scary legends. Here are a few of the books you’ll find at the library:
Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree by Mary Ann Fraser.
Daphne and her brother Sam attend the Heebie-Jeebie Jamboree which is held for one night only on Halloween, as they view warlocks riding brooms, visit the fun crypt, participate in a goblin pie contest, and see the Rolling Bones.

The monster's ring [sound recording]  by Bruce Coville.
A timid boy, eager to frighten the school bully on Halloween night, acquires a magic ring and the power to change himself into a hideous monster.

What a scare, Jesse Bear!  by Nancy White Carlstrom ; illustrated by Bruce Degen.
At Halloween Jesse Bear picks out a pumpkin, helps make a jack-o-lantern, works on a costume, and has fun trick-or-treating.

Bats at the library  by Brian Lies.
Bored with another normal, inky evening, bats discover an open library window and fly in to enjoy the photocopier, water fountain, and especially the books and stories found there.

 And the dolls are still on display - so drop by for some Halloween fun.
