Brutus the Ghost

Brutus is getting ready for the library's Halloween programs by trying on his ghost costume. He's especially excited about the "Night with Ghost Hunter Brad Mikulka" at the Owosso branch on Fri., Oct. 23 @ 7 p.m. , and at the Durand Memorial Branch on Fri., Oct. 30 @ 7 p.m. He's hoping Brad will mistake him for a real ghost.

Brutus will also be at the Durand branch for a trick-or-treat bag craft program for kids on Wed., Oct. 21 from 4-7 p.m., and Halloween bedtime story hour on Fri., Oct. 23 @ 7 p.m. Kids who want to come to the craft program should register ahead by calling 288-3743.

The Owosso branch is having a Murder Mystery Party for teens on Sat., Oct. 24 @ 2 p.m. Actors are needed for the program so Brutus has been practicing his acting skill at playing dead. He'll also be at Owosso's costume party for families with preschoolers on Fri., Oct. 30 from 3-4:30.

Where the Wild Things Are

Brutus romped with the wild things at a puppet show based on Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are yesterday. He joined right in when Max announced "Let the wild rumpus start," and proved that he could also be a wild thing. This was the first of a series of Family Fun Fridays. The next one will be held on October 16 from 2-4 p.m. and will feature a fall craft program.
