On Thursday, October 28, Lee’s Summit’s laptime became a Little Spooks shindig with games, songs, and treats for all the toddlers. Little ones were costumed in princess dresses, cowboy clothes, ladybugs, Elmos, and Thomas the Train. After decorating trick or treat bags, we sang Halloween songs, walked the cake walk, played Spooky Bingo, and fished for treats in a bucket of balls. The final attraction was a parade around the circulation desk for everyone to enjoy. It appeared that all the two-year-olds had a spook-tacular time!
Belated congratulations to the MCPL Book Cart Drill Team and Independence Branches for winning First Place in the "Commercial-Other" Division at the Independence Halloween Parade. The Independence Halloween Parade is a rite of passage for many students in the area. Every student that has ever played in an Independence School band can tell you their own thrilling or chilling story of marching in the parade. It may be another parade to some, but for others, it's a tradition. The team did a great job, thanks for representing!
It's about that time again...the time of year when I start frantically trying to decide what to be for Halloween! Now, I am well aware that it's September. You naysayers may scoff, but I hand make my costume every year. I love sewing and being creative. I love the freedom that comes from being able to adjust details to my every whim. (I think this sleeve needs more ruffles! This hat should be red!)
Halloween isn't really just for kids anymore. Oh, no! The last few years, more and more adults are getting in on the whole costume act as more things become available for adults to do.
Check out most of the clubs and bars in the area, and you'll find tons of Halloween parties and costume contests offered. Now, not only do you need to come up with ideas for your kids' costumes, you need to find something for yourself. Maybe, you'll win big dollars on your big night out!
Are you ready for one of my favorite holidays of the year? Halloween that is! Since Halloween falls on a Monday night this year, we will be celebrating at the library. Please feel free to bring your trick-or-treaters to the Riverside Branch for a treat. I'm looking forward to seeing some great costumes!
Guess who’s ba-a-a-ack! Dino O’Dell! He will be at the North Oak Branch October 25, 2011, Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. to thrill young and old alike with his Not-So-Scary Halloween Show. It's fun. It's funny. It's Halloween. Join Dino O'Dell and the gang as we jam our way through some great tunes and a not-so-scary Halloween tale. OH! Don’t forget to wear your costume!
