Events & Exhibits: In Character Halloween Party

In Character at the Library

We're excited to host our 4th annual IN CHARACTER event on 10/27 from 12PM-2PM for in-person and email submissions to through Sunday, October 31st. The library celebrates the stories and characters that populate our collective imagination. Halloween allows us to both playfully encounter fear and to engage with the characters inhabiting our culture. This event celebrates both. The library invites students, faculty and staff to enter our contest and have photos taken or simply enjoy some sweet treats . This is always a favorite event, and a fun afternoon addition to students' Halloween festivities.

Wonderful costume contest prizes have been provided by Sovereign Remedies, Rosetta's KitchenHorse and HeroSmoothie LabRamsey Library, CrAFT Studio at Ramsey Library, and Communications & Marketing
