Halloween Safety

Halloween is tomorrow! And parents need to consider their children's safety. A very important rule is to carry some form of lighting, such as flashlights or glowsticks. With dozens of people sharing the streets with drivers, we all have to make sure to be extra careful to avoid any incidents.

With this in mind, we at the Jacinto City Library wish everyone a happy and safe Halloween!
