Happy Halloween from Watha T. Daniel/Shaw Library Staff

Halloween is a favorite of the staff at the Watha T. Daniel/Shaw Library.  Luckily, the library will be open until 9 p.m. on Monday, October 31, so please come celebrate with us between school and trick-or-treating.  We will be passing out treats, and will have crafts, spooky stories and face painting for all ages from 4:30-7:30 p.m.  Come in costume, so we can see how cute you are!

Also, bring your carved pumpkins.  We will display them behind our front circulation desk, and a prize will be awarded for the best pumpkin. 

The Hall-o-wiener by Dav Pilkey

We also have books to get you in the Halloween spirit.  One of my personal favorites is the Hall-o-Weiner by Dav Pilkey of Captain Underpants fame.  Full of silly puns and dachshunds, this book is sure to please kids of all ages.

The Humbug WitchA classic Halloween book for ages 4 and up, Humbug Witch may bring back memories for us old people.  A not-so-talented witch tries to be scary but just ends up adorable.  Perfect for the adorable little witches in your life, and a fun Halloween read for those who might not be big or brave enough to handle a ghost story yet.

We wish you a happy haunted holiday and hope to see you for trick-or treating!
