Halloween @ Your Library

This Saturday, October 29th, All Hallows’ Eve eve eve, Northwest Library – its staff in full costume – will be hosting a full day’s worth of Halloween activities.

Starting at 11am, the Sounds of Cypress Concert Winds will be performing a spooktacular concert live on the library’s front lawn.  Come out early and listen to these talented performers while enjoying the cool, crisp Autumnal weather.

Then at noon in our meeting room, Mick Corley will present a teen-oriented program called Tales from Beyond.  On the lineup here are shrunken heads, voodoo, mummies, and many more shockingly strange oddities.
