Halloween Fun for Little Kids at Galena Park Branch Library

BooApaloozaDo you trick-or-treat when the sun is still out? My kids are daytime trick-or-treaters and I am not ashamed to admit it. Yes, my neighbors look at me funny when I knock on their door at five in the afternoon, but what else am I supposed to do? I have tried to trick-or-treat at night and it has always led to children crying. Dragging three kids from house to house for a piece of candy is not worth it, at least not for me. We have also tried to sell the, “Let’s just pass out candy this year” concept, just to end up being the ‘bad’ parents that would not let their kids trick or treat.

DIY Book Pumpkin

Fall has arrived, and this week the temperature will finally be falling into the 70s! If you are looking for a creative way to decorate your home this season, we invite you to join us on Monday, October 16 @ 1:30 pm for a DIY Book Pumpkin Craft for adults. In this simple craft, we will be creating beautiful pumpkins out of old donated paperback books.  

All materials will be provided. Some materials provided courtesy of the Friends of the South Houston Library. For more information, please contact the library at 832-927-5530.

We read a few books, sing a few songs, and have a costume parade around the library.

Join us for a screaming good time.
