With Halloween just around the corner, the Troy Public Library has “conjured’ up ways to make this harvest time very special for little boys and girls within the confines of COVID-19.

Shanlie Wolter, children’s librarian, said it’s common knowledge that the TPL throws the biggest Halloween bash in town.

“And, this year will be no different,” Wolter said.

But rather than one day of Halloween fun, the TPL will spread the fun over Hall-O- Week.

Each day, from Monday, October 26 through Friday, October 30, the TPL will host a variety of Halloween-ie activities and programs.

Wolter said each day there will be fun activities for children of all ages from things to make and do, to things to see and be.

“We have a full week of Halloween fun planned,” Wolter said and gave a few hints at what the fun things might be. “We’ll have crafts and baking projects, and a monster hunt and it wouldn’t be Halloween without trick or treating.”

And, Halloween is a time for spooky, fun storytelling and, “of course,” Wolter said, “a costume contest!”

All activities planned for Hall-O-Week are family-friendly and suitable for children of all ages.

“The health and safety of our patrons and staff are paramount, here at Troy Public Library,” Wolter said. “Open house style programming will help alleviate possible crowding. We will continue to follow all state mandated Covid-19 guidelines during HALL-O-WEEK, and we thank our patrons for wearing masks and practicing social distancing during their visits.”
