Georgetown Library Celebrates Fall

Georgetown Library recently ushered in the fall season with Fall Fest.Participants enjoyed stories and songs like the The Old Lady Who Wasn’t Afraid of Anything and Pumpkin Heads. Afterward, there was pumpkin decorating, Halloween Twister, a gravestone craft station based on Edgar Lee Master’s Spoon River Anthology, and a Headless Horseman photo board that is still up in the Children’s Room. There were some stunning gymnastics on the Halloween character twister and some handsome pumpkins that emerged from the decorating room.Check out more photos from the event below.
