Here’s how it works:
• Donate your swap-able costumes to the library before 9/30.
• In exchange for each complete, clean, gently worn costume, you will receive 1 swap ticket to claim a new-to-you costume at the 10/1/ event.
• No costume to swap? Still want to shop? Stop by the event after 2:30 pm and purchase any costume for a $5 donation which will support children’s programs. Drop off your costumes in the APL Children’s Room between 9/19 -9/30
