Come celebrate Halloween with us at the library!Wear your costume for a parade and trick-or-treating and have fun with Halloween games and crafts.There will be light refreshments and our friends at Sweet Frog Georgetown will be hiding with special frozen treats!The party will be followed with a Halloween movie appropriate for all ages.
What do you do if it's almost Halloween and you don't have a thing to wear? Why you come to the library of course!In our workshop, you can make a great costume and take it home to wear the next day. All that's needed is a little bit of creativity and a whole lot of Halloween fun.
Where did all of the pop-up books go?! Don't worry, they're still here! Many of these books are very delicate and not available to check out, but you will be able to read them and handle them in the library! Just drop on by Thursday nights and our children's staff will bring them out for you. Please note that young children must handle pop-up books with a parent.
Stop in between 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. for Halloween-themed stories and crafts -- spooky and not-so spooky! Costumes welcome. Make your own mask, decorate a "pumpkin", and more. Special treats will be available at the Circulation Desk for children who check out books! Children may also join our regularly scheduled Family Story Time in costume for Halloween-themed stories and songs at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 31.
Join us for our annual Halloween celebration! We will begin with a ghoulish storytime at 7 p.m., followed by a costume contest. The judging will begin at 7:30 and the prizes will be awarded at 7:50. A craft activity for older children will be provided, as well as refreshments, and of course... BOOKS AND TREATS! Call 202-576-7252 for more information.
