Remember Halloween?

We do! And we have the pictures to prove it.

Go to our branch's Flickr page to view the photos of our trick-or-treaters. We had princesses, super heroes, and more! Children listened to a Halloween story, made a craft, and enjoyed Halloween goodies with Maggie, the Children's Librarian.

If you weren't able to make it to our Halloween celebration, then do not despair. This Saturday, we will have our Holiday Open House from 1 PM to 3 PM. Santa will be in attendance from 1:30-2:30, so make sure to bring your cameras!
