Libraries offer Spooktacular Tales events for Kids

The Jackson-George Regional Library System will present special “Spooktacular Tales” storytime shows at branch libraries throughout Jackson and George counties.
“These family-friendly events are great for our preschoolers and school age kids. It will be a great show for the whole family,” said youth services coordinator Bethany Carlisle. “We’re planning this event with young children in mind - nothing scary - that will last about 30 minutes. We’ll hand out treats and everyone will have a good time,” she said.

Carlisle suggests that children wear their favorite Halloween costumes or bring a special bedtime pal for the shows.

Oct. 10, 5 pm - St. Martin Public Library
Oct. 11, 5:30 pm - Pascagoula Public Library
