Costumed youngsters parade through library


A motley crew of miniature ninjas, tigers and witches marched through Bemis Library on Oct. 27, the second day of the library’s Children’s Costume Parade. Giggles and candy were in abundance, and the adorable mob seemed fitting among the whimsy of the stories lining the shelves. “This really helps bring the community together,” said Shannon Brennan, a children’s librarian. “It’s just so rewarding to get to play with these kids and be part of their Halloween.” Darci Jones said she’s been coming to the parade every year since her 5-year-old daughter Natalie was born. “The librarians all know my kids by name,” Jones said. “It’s really special for them to have a place like this.”
