October @ the Library

It’s that time of year! October, Halloween Crafts!

What are we doing this year?

Story Time is on Wednesdays at 10:00 AM. They will have a Halloween themed craft each week except for October 25th. We will be meeting at 9:30 AM and then Trick-or-Treating a few businesses on Central street. If we have time after we will make a craft.

The school kids will have some craft days after school. October 11th at 4:30 PM the kids will make edible Halloween monsters from Ding Dongs and Twinkies.

October 18th is Chocolate Cupcake Day so, we will make those also into some kind of monster. The best part is they get to eat the creation when they are done.

October 25th at 4:30 the kids will be Halloween slime.

The adults will also be making some crafts, we are still working on that schedule.

Watch our Facebook page for all upcoming events.…
