Annual Boo Parade on Thursday, October 26th

All preschoolers and their parents are invited to join us for our annual Boo Parade on Thursday, October 26th at 10:00 am.

We will decorate treat bags here at the library first. Then we will head out to trick or treat at the Country Store, Town Hall, Police Station, Community Church and Main Street Art.

Afterwards, we will return to the library for a few not-too-scary stories.

This will be held rain or shine! Wagons and strollers are welcome.
