To celebrate Halloween and the spine-tingling thrills of reading, the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is giving children ages 12 and younger a spooky passport (or print one at cincinnatilibrary.org). HallowREAD runs through Oct. 31, so load up the car and head to your local Library branch!
For every visit to any Library location, a staff member will stamp the passport and the child will receive a piece of candy or a prize. On the third visit, they will receive a free book (one book per child; all subsequent visits, kids receive candy or prize)! Parents and adult caregivers will also receive a coupon good for a discount at the Friends of the Library Shop in the Main Library (800 Vine St., downtown Cincinnati).
For more information, call 513-369-6900.
