The Columbia County Library is offering two special events for children this month, with its Halloween After Hours and Bill and The Boo Hag Story Time.
Halloween After Hours is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26. The event will feature a family-friendly story and craft time, with games and puzzles for all.
"It's an opportunity for dads and older siblings to come to storytime," said Pam Link, the children's librarian. "Plus, it's after the library closes, which makes it a little special."
Link said the library opens to the public in an after-hours storytime about four times a year - Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's and Easter.
The Halloween After Hours is open to the entire family - babies, preschoolers and school-age children, and older siblings and their parents. Participants will do a craft after the storytime and everyone will receive a treat.
The second event to be held at the library is Bill and the Boo Hag Story Time. That program will be start at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 30. Dr. Warren Karp, a professor emeritus at the Medical College of Georgia School of Medicine, is a frequent storyteller at the library. With his guitar, songs and storytelling, Dr. Karp, "Bill," will entertain youngsters 6 and older.
"This is a story about how he met his first wife in Savannah and how she turned into a boo hag," Link said.
