NORWALK, Conn. — The Norwalk Public Library celebrated Halloween outdoors on Wednesday, October 27 at the SoNo Branch Library and Thursday, October 28 at the Main Library. Mr. Bungles entertained the children with bubbles, balloons and comedy after they received their bags, candy and two free books each at the SoNo Branch. The Main Library set up five stations, starting with the decorated pop-up truck where youth received a paper bag with treats. They were able to fill the bag with goodies received from other stations. The final stop was the parking lot station, where they received a mini craft giveaway and more treats.

Special thanks to the Norwalk Fire Department for providing the festive trick-or-treat bags with Halloween safety tips!

I am such a fan of our library(ies)! So glad to see fun, “ghoulish” good cheer once again in our community, for our kids of all ages. Thank you for setting such a wonder-full atmosphere, Sherelle!

Awesome costumes. Awesome kids for reading. Awesome parents who encourage their kids to read.

Who does it better than this entire crew?

I love our main library and the people who work there. I don’t remember Halloween decorations in years past but, it was really fun driving up to the festive decor today! They do such a great job!

Wonderful program effort by Library staff who once again offer creative ways to cope through a pandemic. I hope more folks visit the Library and can’t wait to find out when we’ll break ground on the Main Library redesign!
