The Library’s annual Boo View took place on October 21st. Treats, but not too many tricks, and lots of fun was had by all. Some kiddos were even brave enough to pick a winner from Frankie’s nose!

Maze of Mayhem

Thanks to the Boo Crew and our hard working library staff, the 1st annual Maze of Mayhem was scary good fun! People were brave enough to attempt the maze and return their lost library book… well some of us had to use the exit door! Proceeds of $160 were donated to the Arapahoe Public School’s Backpack food program.
