Spooky Storytime

Don’t be Afraid of a Good Book!

 

Come and enjoy a special family friendly Halloween Storytime presented by the Alachua Branch Library and the City of Alachua, located at Theater ParkAlachua Downtown Historic District, 14900 Main Street, Alachua, FL 32616.

Halloween is a fun time to dress up and listen to stories.  At the Spooky Storytime event we will share stories about witches, mummy's, and ghosts.  There will be music and dancing to silly songs like the "Monster Mash."  The park will be decorated in Fall ornaments and maybe a spooky item here or there.  The park is located on Alachua's main street but if you need help locating the event look for our spooky fog to lead you there!

Please bring seating if desired. Costumes are optional.

The event is geared towards families.
