It’s the season for “… ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night”
Halloween isn’t just for children at the Washington County Public Library, we enjoy it as well. So we’ve planned a lot of fun for everyone.
It all starts with Halloween Bingo Saturday, Oct. 27 at 10 a.m., at the main library. Children are encouraged to dress in costume. Halloween-themed prizes and candy are awarded. If you’d rather see a movie, take a little trip to the Glade Spring branch library. Tonia will be showing the Halloween classic, “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown,” Saturday, Oct. 27 at 11:30 a.m.
Beginning at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 30, children are invited to don costumes and trick or treat at the main library in Abingdon. We can’t wait to see their costumes (and we’ll be in costume too). We’ll hand out candy and judge a pumpkin contest.
Kids should bring their completed pumpkin entries by 6:15 p.m. for judging. The winners will be announced at 7 p.m. Pumpkins may be carved or painted. Carved pumpkins are judged in most original, scariest and silliest categories; painted pumpkins are judged separately.
The Glade Spring branch library holds Trunk or Treat from 5-7 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 31. It’s all treats and no tricks at the Mendota branch library Oct. 31 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
A Steampunk and Harry Potter party is held at the Damascus branch library, Oct. 31 from 5-7 p.m. Dress up as your favorite Steampunk or Harry Potter character and join us for this theme party. If you really wanted to be Batman or a princess, don’t worry – come anyway. There will be refreshments, lots of props for photo taking, games and trivia.
