The Kenton County Public Library is Spooktacular!

I love October. I think it’s my favorite month of the year. The weather is cooler – perfect for jeans and sweatshirts. The leaves turn beautiful colors, it’s the perfect time for making smores over a bonfire, I enjoy the flavors of fall including pumpkin spiced anything, children are getting excited about Halloween and the programming at the Library is spooktacular! I love helping my kids design their costumes and decorating my house and yard. “How to Create Spectacular Halloween Costumes” by Louann Brown,” Paper Crafts for Halloween” by McGee, Randel and “Haunted House Adventure Crafts” by Anna Llimos Plomer are great books to assist with decorating and costumes. Having Zinio online has made cooking, decorating and making costumes even easier!  Zinio is an online service available through the Library that offers thousands of magazine subscriptions for free. I love “Taste of Home Holiday,” “Family Circle,” “Country Living,” “Parenting” and “Women’s Day” for holiday ideas, recipes and more. The Library offers great fall/Halloween programs this month – all for free. There is a Haunt Your Library contest taking place at the Covington Branch Library for grades 1-6 until October 10. Winning stories will be featured in The Recorder Newspaper and prizes will be awarded.  The Halloween storytimes are definitely the cutest thing we see all year – babies in costume! The Boo Bash, Octoberfest and Pumpkin Carving Party are sure to be a good time. The Haunted Library at the Durr Branch on Friday, Oct. 26 and Sat., Oct. 27 promises to offer thrills, chills and laughs. This is suggested for those 6 and older. The Durr Branch has a few Dracula themed events this month as well as a presentation by the Paranormal Investigators [...]
