GREAT HALLOWEEN COSTUME SWAP

Saturday, October 8, 2016
9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

The library’s GO Green Club will host the 4th annual “Great Halloween Costume Swap” on Saturday, Oct. 8 at the library. Instead of purchasing new costumes each year, the group aims to encourage the community to swap their slightly used costumes to save resources, packaging, transportation costs, and money. Persons interested in participating can drop off gently used costumes for children, teens or adults on Thursday, Oct.6 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. or Friday, Oct. 7 from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. Costumes should be in GREAT condition. Participants will get a token for each costume donated. Return on Saturday, October 8 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. with your token and shop for a swap. Any costumes and accessories remaining will be donated to a local charity. Adult and teen volunteers are needed on Friday and Saturday to help with the swap. Email ptplgogreenclub@gmail.com to volunteer or for more information.
