The annual Halloween events at the Fairfield Public Library will be held virtually this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, library officials say.
The traditional Halloween costume parade at the library has been replaced by a virtual Sing and Stomp.
"We're inviting all the kids to dress up virtually in their costumes," Head of Children's services at the library, Tamara Lyhne says.
Other virtual sessions will include Spooky Story time, and a few arts and crafts projects.
Parents are required to sign up online and pick up the materials their kids will need the day before to participate in the arts and crafts event.
The virtual events are a way for children to still get a visit from all the ghouls and goblins and, of course, their favorite librarians just through a computer screen.
"We know that families are looking for a little normalcy and joy, and we're hoping that by bringing them these programs, they can find that," Lyhne says.
