Library hosts Halloween in a FaBOOlous Way

Normally, the Middle School Library would have been transformed into a darkly decorated haunted house complete with creepy sounds...and treats.
And, the library team would have had their themed costumes ready to thrill the HS with our frighteningly fun creativity...and, of course, treats. But in these not-so-normal times, the library instead hosted an online ZoomSpookFest that was a dreadful delight!
Rev. Yolanda from Drag Queen Story Hour entertained First Program students on Friday, October 30, as she read a few beastly stories and sang some seasonal songs. Dressing up as a means of self-expression and creativity was celebrated! FP students had the option to participate in a Maker Challenge to create a headpiece (that fit in the Zoom screen) out of easily accessible materials they found at home or in the pods. A Fall-ternate storytime was offered for students who do not celebrate Halloween. 
Middle and high school students were encouraged to dress up as well and surprise guests from the faculty and staff read spooky stories to them. Be sure to watch the stories here! The middle and high school students also have access to a "Halloween Trick or Read" topic in Classes that includes links to movies, ebooks, and audiobooks. 
Each divisional library has put together a shelf of treats with books to checkout! Just click on the covers to be taken directly to the books. Go to each division's homepage by clicking here for access...if you dare...mwahahaha...
