Join us for a reading of Niño Wrestles the World by Yuyi Morales and learn about lucha libre, a theatrical style of professional wrestling popular in Mexico and other Spanish-speaking countries. Then get crafty and create your own luchador masks!
What was that sound! Was it coming from the library? Why yes, it's our terrifyingly fun Halloween themed family storytime. Dress up in your favorite costume and listen to some spooktacular stories. We'll have a simple craft afterwards that you can take home. No tricks but plenty of treats! For all ages.
No need to scream or growl if your looking for something fun to do on Halloween! Join us for some ghastly themed music as we sway to a terrifying beat. Join us in the children's room for some karaoke and a simple craft. You can dress in your favorite costume or come as you are. For ages 6 and up.
Join other parents and childcare givers for a discussion about a childcare related article available for pickup at the West End Children's Desk throughout October.
Adults are the focus, but children are also welcome.
