Halloween Party 2014

We had a BLAST at our Halloween Party today, and we hope you did too! We made all kinds of crafts, including beading, coloring, a "Make Your Own Mummy" station, and a bag decorating station for Halloween candy and treats. We also played fun games, like Mummy Bowling, Bozo Buckets, Halloween Mystery Boxes, and Trick or Treating around the library. We even got to wrap up Jacob, our Circulation Supervisor, like a mummy!

All in all, Miss Theresa and Miss Julia deemed this party a success!

Thanks to everyone for coming and participating in a great Halloween program!

Special thanks to Michelle for taking pictures, to Jacob for letting us turn him into a mummy, and to Sue M. for helping clean up at the end!

Enjoy some pictures below of the festivities.

Raina Telgemeier Author Visit

Miss Theresa and Miss Julia were fortunate to be able to attend the author visit of Raina Telgemeier (author of Smile, Drama, and Sisters) at Brook Forest Elementary School. Telgemeier spoke about her childhood, her graphic novels, her art, and she answered student questions about her graphic novels. She even drew a picture while answering questions! 

Thanks to John Schu for letting us enjoy this visit with the rest of the students and faculty at Brook Forest!

Pumpkin Painting

Here are some wonderful pictures of our Pumpkin Painting Program. We had grades Kindergarten, all the way to teens participating in the program. Thanks to the crowd (over forty of you) that came out to the library. This is what libraries are all about. 

(Special thanks to our very own Xavier in Adult Services for the amazing photographs.)
