Halloween can be a tricky time for families. Not everyone has the guts for scary things. It’s just not in their blood. So, finding activities with bare-bones creepiness can be a real pain in the neck.  

Luckily, Carnegie Library locations across the city are (g)hosting several Halloween events perfect for all ages. Grab your costume and join us for eerie-sistible fun: games, treats, and crafts, and more! 

Plus, several RAD organ-izations are offering not-so-scary programs that guarantee skele-fun for the whole family. From live animal encounters, to laser shows, to pumpkin trebuchets (oh my gourd!), you’ll find something to lift your spirits. And don’t forget to visit, where your library card is your access to free or discounted tickets to skull-tural attractions around the county.  

For Halloween fun less ghastly than puns found in this post (sorry, SORRY), check out the list below.
