Not So Nightmarish Ghost Ship on Grove

Oct 21, 2022

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Gail Borden Public Library 270 N Grove Ave Elgin, IL 60120

Event Website

Shiver me timbers! This special after-hours event will feature a haunted Pirate Island exhibit that is not too scary along with pirate games, crafts, contests, giveaways, and other fun activities. Note, that at least one person 14 years or younger in your group must have a Gail Borden Library card. However, everyone will want a library card as all people who register for the event will be entered into a drawing for a LEGO pirate ship grand prize! Whether a pirate or landlubber, you are invited to come in costume. All attendees must be registered–including a family member accompanying the kids.

If you still need a card, sign up online or visit any library location gailborden.info/getcard

Registration for this event opens on September 1.
