HAYWARD — The city library is collecting Halloween costume donations, recycling the outfits while at the same time making sure every kid can afford to dress up for what has become one of the year’s biggest holidays.
During September, you can drop off Halloween costumes and accessories for children ages 10 and younger at city libraries. Face it: Your growing darling can’t fit into last year’s costume. So why not pass it on to another kid?
Parents, here’s an extra incentive: When you donate a costume, you receive a ticket to a Halloween Costume Swap in October, with first pick of costumes.
Pretty cool, right?
The swap meets will be 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 7, at the Main Library, and 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11, at the Weekes Branch.
