Storybook Characters Come Alive

Book-o-ween at Lamond-Riggs

WOW! It was just last month at this time we were inundated with super heroes, princesses and every kind of storybook character.  It was the bee’s knees, even the Very Hungry Caterpillar came to Lamond-Riggs Library! All of the familiar storybook characters came to the library to celebrate Book-O-Ween. The teachers and children from nearby DC Bilingual perform this “car stopping” trick during the Halloween season.
