Downtown Madison Family Halloween

Downtown Madison Family Halloween

Downtown Madison Family Halloween is Wednesday, October 29 this year.  Drop in between 2-6 pm to make creepy crafts and more in the Central Library Children’s Room!

Gather around our "campfire" as we share spooky seasonal stories--some scary, some not.  Not-so-scary stories at 2:30, scary ones at 3:30.  Librarians will start things off and then it's YOUR turn!

Coming later? Join MadCAP performers for an Interactive Storytelling Experience with song, instruments, storytelling and acting elements to share!

Trick or treat stations in the Children’s Room and at the First floor entrance from 3-6 pm
