Fall is in the air at the Tuscarawas County Public Library System and the County Library System will host Fall Festivals throughout the month of October.

“Each location will have its own fun event, so customers are able to choose whichever event works best for their family,” said the County Library’s Assistant Director Brian Herzog. “Depending upon which events you choose to attend, activities will include a chance to dress up, complete crafts, play games, or enjoy a not-so-scary haunted house.”

Upcoming fall fun includes:

  • Sugarcreek Fall Festival - October 7th from 5:00-7:00 PM Sugarcreek Branch (120 South Broadway). Drop in for festive games, crafts, and refreshments for all ages.
  • Tusky Fall Festival - October 18th from 5:00-7:00 PM at the Tuscarawas Branch (209 S. Main St.) Make crafts, play games, and enjoy a visit from some furry friends.
  • Bolivar Fall Festival - October 25th from 5:30-7:30 PM at the Bolivar Branch (455 W. Water St.) Enjoy games, snacks, and crafts throughout the library. Costumes welcome!
  • Trick-or-Treat at the Library – October 27th from 5:30-6:30 PM or 6:30-7:30 PM at the Main Library (121 Fair Ave NW, New Phila). Put on a favorite costume and stop at twelve different themed stations throughout the library to collect goodies.
  • Not-So-Scary Haunted House – October 27th from 5:30-7:30 PM at the Mobile Services Building (145 Beech Lane NW, New Phila). This event will take place during the Main Library’s Trick-or-Treat at the Library event and requires a separate registration. Have fun walking through a haunted house that is appropriate for all ages. 

According to Herzog, all of these events are free of charge and open to all families across the county. 

“We ask that if you plan to stop in at one of our Fall Festivals that you register so we know how many to plan for,” said Herzog.
