GET into the Halloween spirit at Hedon Library!
This half term, the Library is hosting a spooky story time event for all the family aimed at children, it will be “frightful fun” said East Riding Council Libraries spokesperson Kimberley Harston!
The libraries have been stocking up on scary books for children, such as Mr Tickle and the Scary Halloween, by Roger Hargreaves and Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and the Really Frightful Night, by Kristina Stephenson.
Kimberley explained why such spooky titles are so popular:
“Children get a thrill from reading about monsters and ghosts – and being a little bit frightened – but books give them a sense of control, they can close them if they want to!
“They are not just great entertainment, but stories can help children to confront their fears in a safe way, like being read to whilst sitting on their parents’ knee.
We hope that children will want to come and visit their local library for Hallowe’en and seek out some new experiences!”
‘Halloween Storytime for all the family’ takes place at Hedon Library on Wednesday, 29th October 2014, from 10am – 11am.
The event is FREE but booking is required: Call into the Library at 31 St Augustine’s Gate, Hedon or call 01482 897651.
