The Halloween Blog Post

Here is my costume! I slept in rollers to assure my hair was authentic. I am very proud.

Here is a link to information on haunted libraries

We held a "Librarians Go Goth" program as part of our Teen Read Week festivities. When the teens voted for the Teen's Top Ten, we added a spot to nominate a librarian to go goth! We took some before photos and the teens got a big kick out of this. Here were our results:
The winners:
Mrs. Valerie runs our Printz Club and works at the Youth Services desk.

She became "V", our angst-y goth.

Mrs. Honey is our Youth Services Manager.

She became our perky goth.

Mrs. Mary is famous for her family story time.

She became our sexy goth!

These ladies got into the part and did a fantastic job. I highly recommend this program idea.
I think it would have been a bit better if we had the teens dress up the librarians with their clothes, make-up etc.
This cost no money to do. The prep involved creating the voting display, finding victims, er, um I mean volunteers and arranging days for them to dress up.
