We’re grateful that the Vigo County Public Library believes in the reach and efficacy of Haute Happenings enough to allocate a small portion of the library’s promotional budget to sponsorship of posts such as this one. All opinions are our own, and our enthusiasm for the library’s seasonal events is genuine!
Rarely a day or week goes by where I don’t feel thankful for the Vigo County Public Library. The members of this organization are always looking for ways to serve our community better. One of the ways in which they do that is by offering fun, safe, seasonal events! This month, the library is the place to be when it comes to FREE Halloween fun!
