HAPPENINGS
MOFFAT LIBRARY CELEBRATES HALLOWEEN
There were loads of activities this Halloween season at Moffat!  Pictured above are participants in the Pumpkin Painting program, as well as decorations, the corn maze & attendees playing some spooky carnival games at the famous Moffat Library Halloween Carnival!
 
There was a record sign-up for the Pumpkin Painting on October 11th.  Due to unprecedented popular demand for this all-ages program, it was necessary for Youth Librarian, Emily Kinney, to put an emergency order in for additional pumpkins!
 
To add to this, the 17th Annual Halloween Carnival was a great success, with a full house of kids from ages 3-8 with their families!  Attendees enjoyed Face Painting, the Corn Maze, a Halloween Feel Box, Ring Tossing in the stacks & much more.  All the night's activities were presented by the Library's Teen Advisory Board members.
 
Thank you to all the teen volunteers  
who once again made the Halloween Carnival
a great night out for our families!
