Scarecrow Festival!

Scarecrow Festival on the Main Library Lawn from Oct. 13-31, 2018.

The Family Fun Day on Sunday, October 14th from 2 - 3 p.m. was a huge success!

We had lots of families come and enjoy author, Josh Funk, who read from his new picture book, Lost in the Library featuring the famous NYPL lion statues. 

The Middlesex 4H Club Fife & Drum group attracted a huge audience that  included children dancing and marching to their patriotic tunes.

Families strolled the grounds enjoying the scarecrows created by local preschools. 

Over 100 people attended the afternoon celebration and enjoyed12 dozen donuts, gallons of apple cider, and a bushel of apples! 

The scarecrows will be up until the end of the month. Come by and take a look!
