“‘Twas the night before Halloween” treats kids to spooky stories and more

MARQUETTE — A group of kids got the chance to get a head start on Halloween.

Hosted by the Peter White Public Library, “‘Twas the night before Halloween” let kids dress in their costumes early, to enjoy everything spooky and sweet about the special holiday.

“Halloween is a lot of fun, and kids love stories and they love trick-or-treating, so a combination of all of that together is a winning combination,” said Sarah Rehborg, Youth Services Librarian. “We don’t do a lot of evening story times, because you have families that both parents work. All of our story times are usually in the morning, so these evening story times are fantastic for families that sometimes can’t make it to the library, because both parents work.”

Characters ranging from police officers to a mermaid princess came out to enjoy the book readings, which promptly was followed by a costume parade.

The library holds the spooky storytellings each year ahead of Halloween, so it doesn’t interfere with regular trick or treating and other activities.

In true Halloween fashion, the night ended with some well–deserved trick–or–treating.
