SOUTH AMBOY – Visit the Dowdell Library of South Amboy this October and take part in Teen Read Week, Creepy Halloween Party and Toddler Playdates.

Get creative this year with our “Book Face” contest in celebration of Teen Read Week October 11-15. Stop in the Dowdell Library and search for a book with a face on the cover and take a selfie using the book face instead of your own. The most creative photo will win a prize.  If you need ideas, please ask a staff member, we will be happy to help you select a book cover. All photos can be emailed to Deadline will be on Saturday, October 15 at 4 pm.

Prepare to be creeped out at our Creepy Halloween Party Monday, October 24, 3:30-5:30 pm. Children of ages can participate in our costume contest, and try their luck at the touch station where they will have to figure out what creepy item is in each box! Prizes will be given out for the best costume, and for the person who guesses all three creepy items! Refreshments will be served!

Looking for a place for you and your child to socialize? Check out our two offerings: Parent & Toddler Playdate Wednesdays at 1:30 pm and Kindle Tales Mondays & Wednesdays at 4 pm.
