Statesboro Regional Library will host two Halloween-themed events designed to encourage children to read.
First up, from 5-7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 27, is "Read to Rover." The twist is that the dogs, who so patiently watch and listen while the children read aloud to them, will be in costume.
Then on Tuesday, Oct. 28, the library will host a puppet show, called "Too Much Noise on Halloween!" at 6 p.m. Before the show, at 5:30 p.m., there will be a simple craft activity. Afterward, at 6:30 p.m., free books and candy will be available.
A shorter version of the same puppet show will be presented at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday and 9:45 a.m. Thursday.
