BELFAST — Join the Belfast Free Library for safely-distanced outdoor Halloween programs for families, kids, and teens this month.
Decorate-your-own fabric Halloween bags, featuring designs for both young kids and teens, will be available at the library on Tuesday, Oct. 27, from 1 – 4 p.m. Library patrons are invited to pick up a bag in the lobby to decorate at home or sit on the library plaza to color bags with fabric markers.
The rain date for this event is Thursday, Oct. 29 (1 – 4 p.m.). Following the program, bags will be available on the children’s floor while supplies last.
The library, in coordination with Belfast Parks and Recreation, will host a Halloween StoryWalk on Friday, October 30 and Saturday, October 31. A StoryWalk is a marked trail featuring pages of a storybook posted on signboards along the route. StoryWalks were designed as a way to inspire parents, teachers, and caregivers to take young children outdoors and to enjoy reading stories together. Walking the trail while sharing a storybook promotes childhood literacy as well as outdoor activity for all ages.
Starting at the Belfast Boathouse, the StoryWalk trail will make a loop by the water and back along the upper walk. The trail is self-paced and will be open anytime from Friday, at 10 a.m., through sunset on Saturday. Special giveaways will be available on Friday, from 10 – noon.
All library programs are free and open to the public. For more information contact 207-338-3884 ext. 24.
