The Beverly Public Library is wrapping up their October activity calendar with two Halloween activities.

School-aged children are invited to a Halloween party on October 30 at 4 p.m. The event will feature crafts, snacks, and a short film.

Follow up your trick-or-treat collections with a Halloween candy trade. On November 1, trick or treaters are invited to bring a bag of their Halloween candy to the library and trade it for a book about Thanksgiving.

Coming in November, story time for children aged 2-5 will continue at 11 am on November 6. This theme will be ‘giraffes’. Please remember, children must be accompanied by an adult for this program.
