Have a Howling Good Time At the Red Bridge Branch!
Looking for something to do the day before Halloween? Come on by the Red Bridge Branch for our annual Halloween Party! Put on your costume, and spend a hour of fun with Miss Susan! There will be games, treats, and fun times for everyone!
The party starts at two and lasts until three. Still plenty of time afterward to pick up a few books to read on Sunday while you’re waiting for the trick-or-treating to start!
The storytime children at the Dearborn branch went "trick-or-treating" to several prearranged nearby locations Tuesday. This is a tradition of several years here. The parents enjoy the event and have a great opportunity to get pictures. The local businesses they visit enjoy seeing the children, and it is a social occasion for kids and parents alike.
We had superheroes in our presence. Batman (Will Baker) and Superman (Owen Baker) both listened to Halloween books, watched a short Halloween video, and participated in a Halloween craft. While no one was looking, Batman carefully pieced together a puzzle. A little ladybug (Chloe McClintock) also flittered through the library for storytime. We host a preschool storytime on Wednesdays at 10am. Superheroes, princesses, and their sidekicks (moms) are always welcome!
