Halloween at the Library

For all ages

Have your picture taken in your costume and grab a Trick or Treat bag to decorate at home or on the library’s back lawn (weather permitting). We’ll pack a few surprises in your bag and post your picture on our website!

Cover your nose and mouth with your mask and keep your distance from all the other ghouls and goblins. We can’t wait to see you!




Summer Camp Grades 1-6

August 10-14, 9am-12pm, FREE

Call NOW to reserve your space at our summer camp for grades 1-6. Join educator Catherine Hunter to read stories about castles, fairies, gnomes, Japanese Oni monsters, dragons, and unicorns. Make your own castle flag, build a fairy/gnome rock garden, paint a Japanese Oni mask then dance and drum, make dragon scales and eggs, and create your own unicorn horn! Camp is indoors and outdoors. Each camper receives a colorful cloth bag and a fairy tale anthology book. FREE! Bring your own snack.

For over 30 years, Catherine Hunter has been a primary school educator in both private and public schools. With a double master’s degree in early childhood education, her expertise is in the area of children’s literacy.

Note: If we determine at a later date that in person programming is not possible, campers can stop by the library’s curbside pickup for a “take and make” activity each camp day to share with their family at home. Reservations are required because space is very limited. Call the library at 802-325-3123 today!
