The Michael Kusalaba library hosted its first Halloween celebration with its Monster Mash Halloween Party on Oct. 29.
Librarian assistant Amelia Dale created the program, stating that its the first and only Halloween themed event the library has planned for its first year open.
“We opened on Valentines day,” Dale said. “I know Halloween programs are popular at all the libraries.”
The event featured a passport with six different activities for children to do, getting a stamp at each one once it is complete.
The activities included bowling, witches hat ring toss, making a monster magnet board and even going to the librarians’ desk to collect a stamp and candy.
“When they get done, they get a little prize so its just a fun way for kids to come and enjoy the library,” Dale said.
The treat bag included candy, stickers and little toys for children to take home and enjoy.
Children came in throughout the hour long event, cycling through the activities and getting stamps to complete their passports.Many children dressed in costumes to get in the Halloween spirit. For more information about upcoming library events, go to www.libraryvisit.org.
