Upcoming programs at the Bay Village Branch Library
Happy Halloween to all of our communities! What? You don’t have your costume ready? And the kids are meeting at YOUR house for a snack before heading out? Don’t panic! Help is as close as the Bay Village Library.
We’ll help you find last minute ideas for costumes, snacks, games and anything else you’ll need for the fun night! If the books are all checked out, we’ll help you look for ideas online. We can even help when the fun is over and it’s time to get things done before it gets cold(er!). Ask us about books on winterizing your home and gardens, cold weather recipes, or just a great book to read when it’s time to take it easy. Remember, Thanksgiving is not that far away! In the meantime, please come and enjoy these programs!
