FREDERICK COUNTY — Frederick County Public Libraries is keeping the spirit of Halloween alive this October with “Curbside in Costume,” from October 26-31.

During the week of Halloween, librarians at all FCPL branches will be wearing costumes while helping customers with Curbside Pickup. Children and families are invited to participate by wearing their own costumes from the safety of their vehicle, with special prizes given out through FCPL’s contactless service to any children in costume.

“Staff have really missed seeing our customers and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to host a safe celebration of Halloween,” said Heather Hart. “We know this year is different and we wanted to offer some safe lighthearted fun to our usual service to help families feel a sense of normalcy.”

FCPL offers contactless Curbside Pickup. You can pick up books, movies, and tv shows from your car or through a physically distanced walkup option. Since starting the service, they have helped customers across the county check out over 165,366 materials.
