Halloween activities this week at the Northeast Library

Halloween is coming up on Sunday, but that doesn’t mean your kids can’t put their costumes on earlier in the week!

The Northeast Library (6801 35th Ave NE) has FOUR upcoming Halloween activities for your boys and ghouls to enjoy.

Both Story Times this week will include some Not-So-Spooky stories. Costumes are encouraged, and Children’s Services Librarian Erica will be wearing one herself!

  • Tuesday, October 26 at 10:30 am – Preschool Story Time (geared for ages 3-5)
  • Thursday, October 28 at 10:15 & 11:15 am – Toddler Story Time (geared for ages 1-3)

The Northeast Library is also participating in the Wedgwood Halloween Trick-or-Treat on Friday, October 29 from 4-6 pm.

And, last but not least, the library will also receive trick-or-treaters during their open hours on Halloween itself (October 31, from 1-5pm).


We’ll also mention that on Saturday, October 30, at 10:15 am, Children’s Librarian Marita will be back to treat you to more Spanish and English stories and songs.

Thank to you Erica for the information for this post!

Libraries Reopen Tuesday, NE Branch Story Times Off Until October

The Northeast Library reopens on Tuesday!  Yay!

Strap the kids into the mini-van Volvo station wagon and head on down to 6801 35th Ave NE to return that overdue copy of Harold and the Purple Crayon, but if you’re expecting to go to Story Time…

Tall as a Tree!

…you’re out of luck.

Wide as a...wait a second...

Children’s Librarian Erica Delavan will be spending some of her time this month catching up from the closure and visiting local elementary schools.  Story Times will resume the first week of October.

Erica recommends, in the meantime:

Begin with Books kits: Check out thematic kits for toddlers and preschoolers. More information on how to reserve these kits is here. [http://www.spl.org/default.asp?pageID=audience_children_parents_themekits]

That link will be open on Tuesday, too.
