Hallow-reading for Elementary Schoolers!
October is just a few days away and that means the spooky season is upon us and children are eagerly awaiting the costume and candy-fest that is Halloween. This year, we encourage kids to visit the library in their Halloween costume from Monday, October 25-Saturday, October 30. Those who do will receive a few treats, but no tricks! While stopping by, we also encourage parents to pick up a few books to get your elementary school reader in the festive spirit.
Here are a few chilling tales to try:
