The kids have more than just candy to look forward to this Halloween: The Augusta Public Library will be hosting a Halloween Open House from 4:00-6:00 p.m. on Oct. 31. The Open House will feature Halloween-themed stories, crafts, games, and (of course) candy. Guests aren't required to stay the whole time or follow a specific schedule; the stories will be read every half hour, and the games and activities will be available throughout the event.
The Open House is free and open to the public, so every kid who would like some literacy mixed in with all the sugar is welcome to attend.
(Please note that the Open House begins and ends before the official Augusta Trick-or-Treating hours, which run from 5:00-7:30 p.m.)
