Halloween Costumes for Book Lovers

by Carrie

JCPL staff members dressed up as Thing 1 and Thing 2.Among other things, JCPL geeks costumes, and this year, we’re not only having costume contests for children and dogs, we’re also having a staff costume contest. On October 25th, JCPL staff will dress up for a chance to win in four different categories: Best Book Character, Best Movie Character, Best Music Character, and Most Creative Costume. JCPL customers will decide the winners based on photographs that will be posted in the library from October 25th-31st.
