BROOKFIELD – The Brookfield Public Library will play host for a number of upcoming events for Halloween in October.
All ghouls, ghosts and goblins are asked to embrace the art of darkness for a Halloween Art Extravaganza this Saturday from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Kids that attend can create their own Halloween art with local art teacher Gina DeVeno. The event is open to kids in grades 3 through 5 and all artists should expect to get a little messy.
If kids are in the mood for some spooky stories, they are invited to Spooky Story Time, held Oct. 26 at 10:30 a.m. The chosen stories are more “merry” than “scary,” according to staff at the library. Kids can stop by in their Halloween costumes as they trick or treat for Monsters on Main Street.
The whole family is invited to attend Dave Rudolf’s Halloween Spooktacular Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. Rudolf is a Grammy-nominated musician, and will entertain all ages with stories and songs about spooky subjects. Attendees are also encouraged to come dressed in costume for the event.
Finally, on Oct. 30 at 7 p.m., Brookfield author and supernatural expert Raymond Johnson will return to the library to present More Stories from Chicago’s Haunt Detectives. Johnson, a former criminal investigator turned historian, will tell tales of Chicago’s history, legends and haunts. His presentation will spotlight some of Chicago’s most famous supernatural events. Copies of his book, “Chicago Haunt Detective: A Cop’s Guide to Supernatural Chicago,” will be available for purchase and signing following the presentation.
