Downey Library celebrates Halloween

DOWNEY – The Downey City Library will celebrate Halloween with a series of free, family-friendly events. This Saturday at 1 p.m., the library will screen “The Addams Family.” Based on the popular television series, the film is about a group of con artists who try to steal the Addams’ vast fortune with the help of someone who is a dead ringer for long lost Uncle Fester.

On Tuesday and Wednesday between 10:30-11 a.m., children ages 3-5 are invited to trick-or-treat while dressed as their favorite character from a book or movie.

Kids can also make a craft, listen to spooky stories and enjoy refreshments.

Trick-or-treating is for individual children only and their caregivers; no groups allowed. Children should arrive early as doors will close at 10:30.

Next Thursday, Oct. 30, from 6:30-7 p.m. is a Halloween-themed Family Story Night.

The program is free and intended for families with children ages 3-7. Pre-registration is not required.

For questions on any of the programs, call the library at (562) 904-7360, ext. 127.
