Children and teens are invited to dress up like the undead and creep over to the Lumberton Library’s garden for a zombie walk.
This signature event is slated for Oct. 25 from 4 to 5 p.m.
The zombies will shamble around the block, play games and eat brains — I mean snacks. Zombies must be 18 years old or younger and the little zombies need a parent to attend. Parents this program may not be suitable for your young child if they scare very easily. There are 50 spaces available and registration is required. You may register for the zombie walk beginning Oct. 11 by visiting the library or by calling 910-738-4859.
Games and crafts at the library are the perfect way to spend time after school. Children 12 and younger may attend the Afterschool Adventure programs on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. in Rowland and on Oct. 16 at 4 p.m. in Fairmont.
The Lumberton Library will host a Haunted Library for children 12 and younger on Oct. 30 and Oct. 31 from 3 until 5 p.m. each day. The Children’s Library will have spooky activity stations and a storytelling corner. Costumes are always welcome. This is a drop-in program during which children and their parents can visit the stations anytime during the program hours.
