Hear ghost stories and see a scary movie on Thursday, October 27 at the Library

The Adair County Public Library in collaboration with the Adair County Substance Abuse Coalition and Title IV, Safe and Drug Free Schools and Communities will celebrate Halloween a little early this year by holding its second annual Hallow-Read, Thursday, October 27 from 5:00-6:00 p.m. According to LeeAnn Jesse, Adair County librarian, Hallow-Read was enjoyed by many children and parents last year and is just a fun evening devoted to reading stories to the children of our community.
Kidsbring a parent/guardian, wear your costume (or dont) and come join us Thursday, October 27 from 5:00 6:00 p.m. at the Adair County Public Library for the second annual Hallow-Read to hear ghost stories and other fun stories read by The Kids on the Block puppets and other entertaining readers and get goody bags filled with lots of good stuff. And, bring a blanket to join us in the hallow-grove, outside the library to watch Resurrection Mary, the short movie starring Adair County citizens and written by our own Matt Arnold.

Stories will be read to the children by The Kids on the Block puppets and other entertaining readers. Each child will receive a goody bag filled with candy, bookmarks, pencils, stickers and other good things.

After the story reading, Matt Arnolds short movie, Resurrection Mary, starring Adair County citizens will be shown in the grove outside the library, weather permitting. It s recommended to bring a blanket or two to sit on and to wrap up in since it will be cool outside. If the weather doesnt permit, the movie will be shown inside.

Ellen Zornes, Title IV and Substance Abuse Coalition chair stated, We started this last year thinking it would be a safe and fun way for younger children to celebrate Halloween with a parent or other adult. Lee Ann and the library staff and library board are always looking for ways to promote reading. And, our Title IV program and Substance Abuse Coalition are always looking for ways to promote safe child and family events. This just seemed like a great way to accomplish all that and have lots of fun.

Jessee continued, Last year we held it on Halloween night, but there are so many good things happening for children on Halloween that we decided to try another night this year. Thisll give kids another opportunity to wear their costumes, spend some quality time with their parents and hear some really good stories.
