After a stormy autumn morning caused Newtown schools to close, the skies cleared in time for the C.H. Booth Library's annual Halloween Party on Monday, October 30.

The library's Young Adult Council hosted the event for children 3 to 8 years old and chose this year's theme of Once Upon A Fairy Tale.

Children were invited to enjoy a variety of tricks and treats throughout the library, like playing pin the nose on the pumpkin, creating Halloween bags and wands, decorating paper pumpkins, and making lollipop ghosts.

The spooktacular festivities concluded with a Halloween Parade where children lined up in the Children's Department then paraded throughout the library.
