Coplay Public Library: Coplay library to host Halloween storytime Oct. 31

Wednesday, October 30, 2019 by The Press in Columns

Don’t miss a special Halloween storytime with Miss Veronica 11 a.m. Oct. 31. There will be a party with holiday-themed readings and crafts. Costumes are suggested, but not required, for children and adults alike.

Storytime is held 11 a.m. every Thursday.

Show your Penn State pride and enter the raffle to win a chair with the Nittany Lion logo. The chair is on display in the library and featured on our Facebook page.

The drawing will be 4 p.m. Nov. 16. You do not need to be present to win.

All proceeds benefit the library.

The fall basket raffle will be held Nov. 2-16. Drawings for the baskets will be 4 p.m. Nov. 16.

If you would like to donate a basket or items for a basket, please speak to a staff or board member.

There will also be a special book sale 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Nov. 15 and 16.

Check our website, coplaypubliclibrary.org, or call the library at 610-262-7351 for more information.

Every Monday, the library hosts a game night 5-7 p.m. Scrabble experts are here to play or teach anyone who chooses to take up the challenge.

We also have Connect 4, Risk and other favorites. If you’re nimble from practicing yoga, we even have Twister to show off your flexibility.

Feel free to bring your own game!

The library will close 5 p.m. Nov. 27 and will be closed Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28.

We will be open normal hours, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Black Friday, Nov. 29.

We always have books, CDs and DVDs for sale in between our fall and spring sales.

Prices are the same as the big sales. Look for the sale shelves at the front of the circulation desk. Ask if you have trouble locating them.

As you are clearing out the clutter in your house in preparation for the upcoming holiday season, you may come across books or DVDs you would like to donate to the library. We are very happy to have them!

We do not accept Reader’s Digest condensed books, encyclopedias, textbooks or VHS tapes. We also do not accept any items that have smoke, water or other damage or are musty, ripped or torn.

Check our website for our latest donation policies.

Early winter predictions forecast a mild winter, but we live in Pennsylvania, so we can count on some unpleasant weather conditions — at least as far as roads and sidewalks are concerned.

Remember, the library does not follow the school schedule. We list early and whole-day closings on WFMZ television and wfmz.com. Check those sources before you make a trip here.

There are no fines charged for days we close early or are closed for the entire day. Always think of your own and others’ safety.
