Host a Halloween Bash from Movie Licensing USA: Public Libraries
For Tweens, Teens or Adults: Three Literary Themed Halloween Parties for ‘tweens and teens from Good Books for Young Souls

This project would be fun any time of year. But add a little spooky music, and it’s perfect for Halloween: P.U.F.F.IN Library Lab: Light Painting! from Bryce Don’t Play
Storytime Rhymes for Halloween from Miss Tara and Friends:
- “The Ghost”
- “Pumpkin, Pumpkin”
Interested in a Lego Club, but don’t know where to start?

Another Lego program, LEGO Week at Homer Public Library by Claudia Haines, was so popular it became an annual event.
The fall is a great time to reach out to your local schools, too.
Partnering with schools can help your library, your school, and (of course) all those students. YALSA shares some advice for creating such partnerships, in Back to School: Making New Connections
