TOWNSEND — The Townsend Library hosted Halloween Boo Friday on Oct. 29 as a special treat to children. This is the second year for the complimentary event sponsored by the Library Friends.

Every nook of the Children’s Room delighted visitors with a surprise, including stretchy mice, vampire teeth, make your own googly-eyed spider and even a spot to sit and color a few Halloween scenes.
