Halloween – the night when you can dress up in silly costumes and it’s not at all weird to go door to door asking for candy. And what an exciting time it is, too, with all of the festivities leading up to the day itself! Children pick pumpkins from the pumpkin patch and carve them into jack-o’-lanterns (with the help of an adult). Teens like to go to haunted houses and watch scary movies. Adults host parties complete with creative decorations and treats. There’s something for everyone to do on Halloween!

We have a Halloween book display at the library, but hurry – they go fast. See below for a sampling!
