Library staff is getting ready to celebrate Halloween and it's going to be a days long celebration at that. Starting tonight we'll be at Waupaca County Industries adding fun and mayhem to the Halloween party there for some area families. The Library is collaborating on this program with Waupaca County Healthy Start and the Waupaca Area Public Library. This promises to be a good time and we're excited about seeing new and familiar faces.
Thursday the Library will be rocking with costumed preschoolers and their families keeping the ghosts and goblins away. Story Time and Babygarten are going to be one big party this week with music, games and of course the library version of Trick or Treat. All families are welcome to attend and costumes and treat sharing is encouraged.
And finally, on Friday evening, your "in disguise" librarians will be out on the front porch passing out treats to all the families that stop by during the annual Trick or Treat event. Last year we served up the yummy goods to close to 100 people and we'd like to see that number smashed this year. The pumpkins will be out, the lights will be on and we'll be taking photos for our Facebook page so be sure to stop by. We love that the city of Manawa has Trick or Treat on Halloween evening - when else would it be? Who doesn't like being outside in costume when day turns to night, the fallen leaves rustle and swirl in the wind and the cool night air keeps us from getting too tired? Trick or Treat on Halloween evening observes a decades long tradition and is safe and enjoyable when a community is out and about joining in the fun. We'll see you Friday night!
