Get Spooky in the Library this Halloween

Little ones are welcome to attend a Halloween story time, while for older kids there will be a Haunted House Treasure Hunt, with plenty of creepy crawly fun. There’ll be awesomely gruesome touch and feel boxes, spiders to make and take home, puzzles to complete and creatures to find.


Children’s Halloween Story time will be held from 3.30-4pm and is suitable for ages 3-7 years. We will be sharing a mix of ghostly tales and songs, followed by trick or treating.  No bookings necessary.

The Haunted House Treasure hunt will be held from 4-5pm and is suitable for ages 5-12 years. Bookings are required. Phone 8397 7333 or click here to book.

Halloween at the library

Halloween 1

Count Radula and Kathy the Wicked Witch of the Northeast provide reference help for all ghouls and goblins (and regular patrons too)

Halloween fell on a Saturday this year, and library staff used the opportunity to ‘spook up’ – dressing in some fantastic All Hallow’s Eve themed costumes and decorating the library desk.


Pamhilda, Good Witch of the Northeast ready to take a query.




Whilst vampires and witches fielded reference queries, borrowers were met with black cats, bats, pumpkins and an array of scary sorts behind the customer service desk!


Carly the Moggy ready to serve (after preening of course, and perhaps a nap)

The library has an assortment of resources on myths, magic, scary party ideas, and foods for your next Halloween event!
