Howl-o-ween is frightfully good fun

28 October 2015

Pull out your cape, witches hat, or vampire teeth and prepare yourself for some frightfully good fun as Western Downs Libraries’ Youth Bookclubs prepare to bring their favourite spooky book characters to life for ‘Howl-o-ween’ events at Chinchilla and Dalby Libraries on Friday 30 October.

Western Downs Regional Council Spokesperson for Community and Cultural Development and Health Services said the Youth Bookclubs help children develop a love of reading in a fun and interactive group setting.

“The ‘Howl-o-ween’ events are designed to reward Bookclub members for their reading progress and create an opportunity to recruit new members,” she said.

“Children will get to have a Library experience which is out of the ordinary, and a little bit spooky, as they have the chance to take over the empty Library after hours, and after dark. Think Night at the Museum – but with book characters.

“There’ll be trivia quizzes, games and plenty of other activities all geared to bringing friendship and fun to Libraries and reading.”

The ‘Howl-o-ween’ events are suitable for children aged 7 to12 years and run from 6 to 8pm on Friday 30 October at the Chinchilla and Dalby Library branches.
