Halloween Treats

With Fall well underway and Halloween just around the corner, Hassenfeld Library is getting into the spirit of the season. The library may not have any tricks, but we have some zero calorie treats, such as our Halloween book displays and festive decorations. We encourage you to stop by and select your next spooky read. We have have kid friendly as well as adult selections.
