Library plans frightful fun

Posted: Monday, October 10, 2011, 8:52 am

Worthington Libraries has a wicked selection of programs planned to celebrate this spooky season. From slightly scary to completely silly, they will be a treat for kids and teens.

For children

Pumpkin Parades are planned at Old Worthington Library and Northwest Library in the coming weeks. Old Worthington Library will host one this Friday, October 14, at 11am, while Northwest Library's will be held on October 22 at 10am.

Both events will feature a slightly scary storytime, a spook-tacular craft and a parade around the library. Children are encouraged to come in costume.

But wait, there's another costume opportunity! Get the most out of your child's adorable outfit by letting her wear it to the October 19 Monster Mash at Worthington Park Library. At 7pm, kids will celebrate all things scary with stories, crafts and activities.

During Scared Silly, children in grades K-3 will listen to spooky stories, told in the dark, and play games like Pumpkin Bowling and Pass the Vampire Bat. The fun will start at 11am on October 29 at Northwest Library.

For teens

This Friday, October 14, is Z-Day at the Library! The Zombie Invasion starts at 6pm, and teens can come in costume for gruesome games (Pin the Pancreas on the Zombie, anyone?) and a monstrous makeup demonstration.

Those attending the event, which will be held at Northwest Library, should also be prepared to shake a leg during what's sure to be an outrageous dance contest.

Zombie Invasion is part of TGIF, a Library series that offers unique after-hours programs for teens.
