Have a Spooky Time at the Woburn Public Library
The Children’s Room of the Woburn Public Library will sponsor a spooky (and slightly crazy) Halloween Party featuring children’s author Carolyn Crimi, author of “Boris and Bella,” and the newly published “Where’s My Mummy?” Students in elementary grades K-5 are invited to listen to her tales, try their hand at being mummies, doing some monster dancing, and enjoying creepy treats afterwards. The program will be held on Thursday, Oct. 30, 3:30—4:30 pm, in the first floor Study Hall. Crimi will NOT promise not to try to scare you, so be warned! No pre-registration is required; do drop by. Children are welcome to wear their costumes, too! Please call the Children’s Room at 781-937-0405 for more details.
Also happening: Scrabble for grades 3 through 8, and for grades 9-12, will begin Monday, October 27, 2008 from 3:30—4:30 pm in the Study Hall. Drop by for a “spell” and try your hand at competitive Scrabble. Grades 3-8 play in teams of two; grades 9-12 play individually. All the games are played using official Scrabble rules. The program will meet every Monday from October to May; students are invited to come weekly, but may drop by from time to time as well.
There are also still openings in the 11 a.m. storytime for ages 3 ½-5. Pre-registration is required. Please call the Children’s Room to register.
Handicap accessibility can be arranged; please contact the Children’s Room one week before the program at 781-937-0405 for further information.
