Halloween Storytime Drop In!

Do you have little ones who are eager to get out tonight? We’re holding a Halloween Storytime Drop In for 2-5 year olds this afternoon at 1:30pm. It’ll be a fun half hour of spooky stories and more–all aimed at the younger crowd.

Dress up, if you like, and drop in. No registration necessary. See you later……..

Are These the Scariest Books?

It’s almost Halloween, and that means everything scary, including books. One of our favourite bloggers, Larry at the Flavorwire, put together his list of the 50 Scariest Books EVER.  What’s great about this list is that it only allows one book per author, which means Stephen King doesn’t have the monopoly, and frankly, there are some great books on this list!


How many of these have you read? Some of these are on school book lists, but others were new to me, but by the descriptions, there are a few that I think I’m going to have to pick up. Maybe I should have started earlier. Scary reads just won’t feel right when I’m starting my Christmas shopping.

Halloween at the Library!

spookyThis weekend, we’re taking part in a little town fun, and having our own Halloween event at the library!

Join us on Saturday, October 29, anywhere from 10am – 5pm for a fun Halloween Lego challenge, take part in a spooky “I Spy”, and enjoy a bit of candy on us! It’s going to be a lot of fun, so make sure to drop in to say BOO!

There is no registration for these events…drop in for 5 minutes, or stay for a few hours. It’s going to be spooktacular!

Halloween Costumes

All right, I’ll admit it. I’m lazy when it comes to Halloween. I like the idea of coming up with a costume, and showing how witty or creative I can be, but I just never seem to feel like doing it when the time comes around. When I was a kid, it was a different story. Maybe I need candy as incentive?

Aside from the year before last, when I went crazy with the Zombie makeup for Halloween Craft Night (okay, even that was just me dressing in black and throwing a bit of powder on my clothes), I usually just throw on my headband with flying bats and call it a costume.

In the meantime, if you’re looking for some easy costume ideas, try one of these sites….and Pinterest has a TON of great ideas! A lot of these require the child or adult to be in a warm environment….not out trick-or-treating in the cold, but you can adapt. (Remember when all our costumes were created around fitting over a big snowsuit?)
