Houghton Lake Public Library hosting Halloween fun

Stories, authors and zombies, oh my! Get a head start on Halloween Saturday with free programs designed to appeal to the entire family.

The “Not So Frightful” Storytime and Library Costume March will begin at 10:30 a.m. Children of all ages may try out their Halloween costume.

“Though I may look a bit different than usual, I’ll be on hand to read Halloween stories, dance the Monster Mash and march through the library,” Youth Services Librarian Laurie Chudzinski said. “We’ll finish up this fun story time with some crafting, coloring and snacking.”

This program is intended for children ages seven and under, though everyone in the family may attend.

An Author Talk and Zombie Walk starts at 1 p.m.

The books, which feature three young heroes, are set in Traverse City. In the first book, “Alien Ice Cream,” the young heroes must save their friends and family who have been turned into Zombies by “deep brain freeze activation.” In other words, they ate “zombifying” ice cream!

Free ice cream will be served. The Zombie Walk begins at 1:30 p.m. outside (weather permitting).

Michigan authors David Anthony and Charles David will hold an author talk on their latest series, “Heroes from A2Z” beginning at 2 p.m.

Prizes for the top zombie costumes will follow immediately after the author talk.

No registration is required. For information, stop in at the library or call 366-9230.
