Halloween is getting closer!

 

Ethan Clark and Henry Uleau compare Halloween ghost decorations.

 It is getting closer….Halloween!  You could feel the excitement with the group of children at Story Hour this week when we went around the room and asked the question “What are you going to be for Halloween?”  Then, the two stories that were read really put everyone in a festive Halloween mood. And Then Comes Halloween by Tom Brenner is a child’s point of view to the countdown to Halloween and all of the fun in getting ready for it.  Big Pumpkin by Erica Silverman has a witch, ghost, vampire, mummy and a bat all helping each other to prepare pumpkin pie for their Halloween party.

 After the stories, everyone made paper plate ghosts and construction paper pumpkins to decorate the library window.

 

 

Library Costume Contest sees book characters of all kinds come to life.

 

  

Owen as Spiderman, Sawyer as Tom Sawyer, Maren as Warrior Cat and Hannah as The Cat In The Hat. Lila as Dumbo, Silas and Emma Lehouillier as night creatures, Lydia Currier as The Little Mermaid and Hannah as The Cat In The Hat.

 Many book characters came to life at the Wiscasset Public Library on the afternoon of Friday, October 17 to compete for prizes in the categories of scariest, most original and most authentic. The costumed group of readers paraded around the perimeter of the library’s backyard to the spooky theme music from what else? The Harry Potter motion picture.  Everyone was a winner in the end by receiving fun Halloween treat bags generously provided by Big Al’s. 

The Wiscasset Public Library’s phone number is 207/882-7161 and is located at 21 High Street, Wiscasset, Maine.

Ashley and Gabe Wood arrive at the Northern Stars finale dressed in their FIZZ, BOOM, READ T-shirts!

Over eighty-five participants came to enjoy the 2014 Summer Reading Program finale with Northern Stars traveling Planetarium last Friday.... We were all able to gather under the starlit sky in the inflatable dome and learn of constellations, Mars and Saturn, and even other nearby galaxies! John Meader of Northern Stars did a wonderful job narrating the changing night sky patterns and urges everyone to get outside in the evening and star-gaze….you never know what you will discover. Don’t forget the Wiscasset Public Library has a telescope available to be loaned out on a weekly basis thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Library.
