WHEN: Friday, October 29th, 4-6 pm
WHERE: Lonsdale Public Library
WHAT: Halloween Party!!!
Visit the mad scientist’s laboratory to see creepy experiments, examine terrifying specimens, and drink a potion, if you dare!
Enjoy our indoor amusement park where you can play mini-golf, toss a ball into a monster’s mouth, do some boo bowling or pin the alien in its spaceship!
And don’t forget the library, where we will have crafts for little and not-so-little kids, coloring and worksheets, a spooky photo backdrop, trivia for grown-ups and lots of yummy treats!
Because of the size of the crowd, we ask you to please wear your masks. Thanks for helping us keep our community safe.
Our Food for Fines drive starts the day of the party and goes until Saturday, November 6th. Donate any unexpired non-perishable food, household item, or cash to the Lonsdale Area Food Shelf and we will waive up to $10 in late fees from our library.
Sitting around bored because you’re off school? Come on in to the library to do some fun fall crafts all day Thursday and Friday!
The Final Drop in craft of the summer will send the kids back to school in style! Stop in and make our bird pencil topper, and use it to top one of our Lonsdale Public Library pencils! (while supplies last)
Drop-in craft this week is an adorable 3D fish! They look pretty snazzy with those fantails. Stop by and make one while supplies last!
We will be sharing a drop-in craft every week in August. Come in Wednesday through Saturday and make one of your own. During this Olympic year, we’re seeing a lot of flags. What would your flag look like? Design your own!
