Library News's blog
Our annual Halloween party at the Belt Branch was a raging success! Thank you to all the Kiwanis volunteers, the Friends of the Library, and library staff whose hard work made the event possible. Over 215 children (not counting their adults) made their way through the library for treats, games and more!
Also a big thanks to everyone who donated costumes to Uncle Fester's Costume Closet. Dozens of children who might not have otherwise had a chance to dress up got to take their pick from around 75 different costumes. There are still a few costumes left, so any child who needs one before Halloween can stop by the circulation desk! And we WILL be doing the costume closet again next year, so snag those clearanced costumes when they go on sale after Halloween!
Check out more photos of the event on the library's Facebook page!

The best part is that there is unlimited access with no expiration date, so magazines can be read indefinitely.
