The Norma Anders Public library is ready to "Scare up some Halloween fun" at the annual Halloween Carnival Spooktacular from 6:30-7:30 p.m. on October 26. Halloween fun and game stations will be set up throughout the library and punch will be served in the activity room.
This year's Halloween Carnival Spooktacular is anticipated to be bigger and better than ever. This year's event will be the seventh year that children's librarian Rachelle Frost has planned the event. Each year she adds at least one more game to the festivities, which will include: a treat walk, a book walk (which offers Halloween books as prizes), face painting, gourd bowling, a bean bag toss, a fishing game, a pumpkin ring toss, Halloween twister, pin the nose on "Jack", spider web splat, a Halloween duck pond and more.
Children, aged pre-school through fifth grade, are encouraged to come dressed in costume, carrying a treat bag. Parents and grandparents are welcome to come dressed in costumes if they wish, as they will fit right in with the costumed volunteers who will be running the games. Parents, library board members and local students (from the middle school and high school Silver Cord program) will be volunteering to help make the event a success.
At each game station, the children participating will get prizes which include candy and other Halloween items donated by the library staff and board members. For more information, contact the Norma Anders Public library at 476-5210.
