Saturday, October 31, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., stop by the Harold S. Swindle Public Library in Nicholson for a free Boo Bag.

The Boo Bags will have treats and goodies for the children to enjoy. The bags will be handled according to CDC guidelines. Children have to be present to receive a bag.

"We would love to see the children in their Halloween costumes," library manager Rhonda O'Keefe states.

The City of Nicholson, Friends of the Harold S. Swindle Public Library and The Nicholson Fire and Rescue Station have provided the goodies. The goodie bags will be handed out as long as supplies last.

Make and take crafts can be picked up at the library, included in the craft pack is a pretend passport book and a stamp for each country the children virtually visit.

Everyone who posts their finished crafts on the library Facebook page, will be entered into a prized drawing for Bella and Henry plushies and a Bella and Harry Let’s Visit Paris! Book.
