MADISON, Ohio — Madison Public Library is switching up their trick-or-treat this Halloween season.

A new drive-thru trick-or-treat will take place in the Madison High School parking lot, located at 3100 Burns Road, to ensure social distancing.

"Although we're sad we can't have trick-or-treat in the library like we usually do, our staff came up with this great idea where kids can still show off their costumes without getting out of the car," said Dee Culbertson, director. "We will have a mix of edible and nonedible treats and welcome all people who wear costumes."

The drive-thru trick-or-treat will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. on Oct. 30.

The library will also be hosting various Halloween-themed programs over zoom including:

  • "A Know-Nothing Halloween" read-aloud for children in kindergarten and first grade at 4 p.m., Mon., Oct. 26.
  • Halloween baby/toddler storytime for children 0 to 24 months at 9:30 a.m., Tues., Oct. 27.
  • Unscary Halloween Stories and Snacks for young children at 2:45 p.m., Wed., Oct. 28.
  • Unscary Halloween Kindergarten Time especially for 5-and 6-year-olds at 2:45 p.m., Thurs., Oct. 29.
  • Spooky Halloween Party including scary stories for elementary-age children at 6:30 p.m., Thurs., Oct. 29.
  • Young Child Storytime, 9:30 a.m., Fri., Oct. 30
  • Preschool Storytime, 11:30 a.m., Fri., Oct. 30
