Pickerington Public Library Cancels Trunk-or-Treat, Provides Halloween Grab Bag Alternative

Monday, Oct. 26, 2020 — Due to safety concerns in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pickerington Public Library has made the difficult decision to cancel Trunk-or-Treat scheduled for this coming Thursday, Oct. 29 at noon.

As an alternative, the library will offer Trick-or-Treat grab bags containing an assortment of goodies for children 12 and under. Bags will be available during operational hours, while supplies last, at both Pickerington Main Library and Sycamore Plaza Library on Thursday, Oct. 29 and Saturday, Oct. 31. For children with food-related allergies, teal pumpkin options will also be available upon request. Customers may enter either library or ask for a bag while using curbside pickup services. Children must be present to receive a bag.

For all customers, the library has special Halloween-themed binge boxes, featuring a collection of scary movies, plenty of thriller and horror inspired reads, audiobooks, and movies for all ages, as well as craft ideas and more through available online resources and virtual programming. All of which are accessible, for free, with your Pickerington Public Library card.

Though the library and staff are disappointed in missing this year’s Halloween celebration, we appreciate our customers’ continued support and understanding during such unprecedented times.

Pickerington Public Library continues to focus on serving the needs and interests of our community through in-person browsing, computer and internet access, 24/7 e-branch services, virtual programming, and curbside pickup.

For assistance accessing any of these services or materials, download the library’s mobile app for both Apple and Android devices, visit pickeringtonlibrary.org or call Pickerington Main Library at 614-837-4104.
