Halloween is just around the corner, and the library will be celebrating with some Spooktacular Events! There’s something for everyone, and we like to think that books and movies are the best treats of all. Hosting a Halloween party? We’ve got you covered with DIY costume books, Monster Mash music CDs, scary movies for all ages, and horror authors ranging from R.L. Stine to Stephen King. Come visit our new “Storybook Garden” which will be decorated for Halloween, and once the dark and stormy nights descend upon us, make sure you cozy up with a good book!

Voice Fall Service Project: Care Packages for Homeless Teens
Throughout October, the VOICE teen advisory board is seeking donations of toiletries and baby care supplies to make care packages for homeless teens (including teen moms) served by the Night Ministry, an ecumenical and interreligious Chicago-based charity. Please bring in new, travel-size personal care items and new baby care products to bins around the library. Stop by the Check Out or public service desks to pick up a more detailed list of items requested. Thanks in advance for helping VOICE make a difference!
