A Bop in the Big Top during our Costume Carnival

By |2021-10-25T15:53:46-04:00October 25, 2021|

We had a roar during our Preschool Dance Party this Monday.

Now THAT was a dance party! Thanks to all the families who came to our Costume Carnival on Monday. It was a scream!

Kids moved and grooved to the music. Then they played games, made crafts, and enjoyed some party favors – all with a carnival theme!

The costume fun is far from over. Kids can also trick-or-treat at the library on Friday, Oct. 29.

Kids dance until they can’t no mo’ at our Barnyard Boogie.

We threw another preschool dance party earlier this month and this one was a barnyard boogie!

The kids moved and grooved on the dance floor (and by the barn) (and in the pig pen.) Kids also crafted while they caught their breath. It was a rip-roarer. Yeehaw!

We moved, grooved, shimmied, and shook at our Preschool Dance Party on Monday.

Kids donned their costumes a few days early to dance, make a monster mask, and enjoy a bit of story time.

We’ve had a month full of Halloween fun at the library, and it’s almost over. But you can still search for specters during the Ghostbusters Scavenger Hunt at our Lake Branch and trick or treat at the library on Halloween.

Every week, we’ll have stellar activities for kids. No registration is required to attend Marvelous Mondays or Freaky Fridays.

Finally, everyone – kids, teens and adults – has a chance to win prizes when they participate our Summer Reading program. The more you read and the more programs you attend, the better chance you have of winning.
