The Children’s Department at Rodman Public Library will be hosting a Children’s Halloween Party on Saturday, Oct. 25, from 2:00-3:30 p.m. This event will include Halloween games, stories, riddles, music, dancing, treats... and more. Be sure to bring your camera to take a picture of your little ones in front of our harvest fest backdrop.
During the month of October get creative and decorate a pumpkin to look like your favorite children’s book character. You can paint it, dress it or accessorize it any way you like — but no carving. Other vegetables (such as gourds) may be used, too. You can do this as a family, a class, with friends or individually.
Voting will take place during the week of October 20-25, and entries will remain on display through Oct. 31. Prizes will be awarded in a number of categories chosen by judges and popular votes from library visitors. For more information, call the Children’s Department at 330-821-2665, ext. 223.

You may have noticed that our catalog now has a new look. It works just like the old catalog, but things may be in a slightly different location now*. Here are some things to look for:

Yarn can be dropped off at the Main Library or the Library Branch any time during business hours.
