This coming weekend is, of course, Halloween! Halloween is one of those very popular holidays that has a gazillion books and films to accompany it. The children's room has many on display, so stop by.
On Saturday, October 30th, the Friends of the Library of Windham (FLOW) are teaming up with our children's room to present a "Mini Fall Fun Festival." Festivities start at 1:00 PM with a reading of Littlebat's Halloween Story by my alter-ego, Diane Mayr [JP MAY]. Littlebat's Halloween Story was inspired by the bats who lived in the attic at the old library (before we moved to our new location in 1997). After the reading, books will be available for purchase and signing (supplies are limited).
Other activities will be a cookie decorating station, face painting by "May Da Painta," necklace making, and pumpkin decorating. If we're lucky, and it doesn't rain, kids will be able to participate in an outdoor "Find the Candy in the Haystack." activity. Snacks will be provided, and door prizes awarded.
Costumes are encouraged, but are optional. No registration is required! Plan to arrive by 1:00 to take advantage of all the activities that will take place. As always, we can only promise that food and crafts will be available "while supplies last."
Start your holiday today by carving a virtual jack-o-lantern. Click here and have fun!
