Join us for Pizza and Pages - October 20 @ 4:30 pm! Franken-Toys & "Young Frankenstein"

Teens and Tweens you are invited to join us on Thursday, October 20 at 4:30 pm for our Halloween version of Pizza and Pages. We will be watching the classic 1974 "Young Frankenstein" with Wisconsin's own Gene Wilder. Come early and help us create some Franken-Toys. We'll tear apart toys and then reassemble the pieces into wacky and scary Franken-Toys. We'll have supplies or bring your own old toys to create your new monster. Plus - eat pizza!

Young Adults in grades 5-12 are welcome on 3rd Thursday of each month for pizza and pages.

Check out a scary vampire, monster, zombie or any Halloween book today at the library to get your ideas flowing.
Get ready to enjoy some pizza, popcorn and a great movie.
