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!
Take a peek at what’s on the library’s Halloween calendar!
Head to the library for “Not So Scary Monsters” to make your own mask special story times. These will take place during the 10/24 “Books Before Bedtime” from 6-7, and also on 10/30 from 10-11am during “Wiggle Worm Wednesday.”
On the hunt for this year’s perfect costume? Ready to part with some of your past favorites? Join the FREE costume swap at the West Branch! Save money, reduce waste, and be creative with random accessories or gently-used outfits this Halloween. Visit the West Branch Library to leave what you can and take what you need to create your perfect costume. Costumes for all ages will be accepted and available to take at no charge. Items will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. The Halloween Costume Swap happens on the 23rd to the 25th, and the 28th to the 31st from 12 to 6pm each day.
A favorite local traditions is to wear your costumes to the Vigo County Public Library to trick or treat at the library and take home a new book! This year, the fun is happening on October 25 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Start your night off with a free book of your choice from the Vigo County Public Library. Show off your costume and snap photos at our photo booth before you head downtown for more tricks and treats!
Closer to Halloween, head over to the West Branch for the Halloween party and book giveaway! All ages are invited to stop by the West Branch Library while trick-or-treating. Create a Halloween-themed craft, enjoy some tasty treats, and receive a new book. This fun is happening on Wednesday, October 30 from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm.
