Lions, tigers, and bears . . .
Ghosts, vampires, and witches . . .
Ballerinas, Thomas the Tank Engines, and Snow White . . .
Close to 200 kids and parents enjoyed Hallowe'en songs and crafts before ascending to the upper floors for some trick or treating.
The staff at Children's were a vampirish variety: bikers . . . Lestat and Lilly Munster look-a-likes . . . caped and fanged and ready to greet the visitors. See all the photos from the event on London Public Library's Flickr page.
Just as you’ve been putting your bicycles and baseball gloves and garden bulbs away for the winter, we at London Public Library have put our Libro Library Road Show trailer away for the season. Our first summer and fall with the Road Show trailer were very successful. We visited over 60 sites and spoke with thousands of Londoners about the London Public Library and its role in the community.
Congratulations to our My Life. My Library. My Story winners, Andres Gnecco, Joanne Grosman and Taylor Chidley. Thank you to all of you who told us how important the library is to you and your family! Entries were judged by our playwright-in-residence Dave Carley, our marketing manager Christina Nurse and the London Free Press managing editor Joe Ruscitti. Here are the winning entries.
First Prize Winner: Andres Gnecco
