Are you ready for the ghosts and goblins this year? Halloween is just around the corner. When I was growing up my brother and I were so excited to dress up and go out trick or treating and get as much candy as we possibly could. I remember the neighbourhood kids filling a couple of pillow cases full! My brother and I were never able to get that much, and I’m sure what we did collect was more than what we needed. Trick or treating is still popular with the little ones but it is also popular for kids and their families to dress up and attend Halloween parties and events in and around the city. As I grew older, I loved getting together with a group of friends, having snacks and watching our favourite horror movies that we would rent from our local video store.
If this is something you would like to do this Halloween, the Library has a great selection of movies in various formats such as; DVD, Blu-ray and in digital format from Hoopla. Please feel free to go to our website www.gppl.ca and search the catalogue. Are you curious about how much you could save by taking those movies out from the library rather than renting or purchasing them? If you currently receive email notifications regarding your library membership, it will show you the amount in the email, if you check the items out at the Customer Services Desk at the Library, you will see the amount you saved on your receipt. It is amazing how much you will save in the run of a year just by having a library card. Discover the possibilities!
