Halloween “Treat Drive” for the Village of Valley Falls!

Did you know that our Village hosts over 400 goblins and ghouls on Halloween night?! We are fortunate to be a location where families feel safe to enjoy a great night of trick or treating. And that’s a lot of treats!

The Valley Falls Free Library is hosting a “Treat Drive” for this year’s Halloween. Want to donate some candy or other goodies for the houses in the Village? Drop it by the box in the Library. If you are a giver of Halloween treats in the Village, please come by and grab some treats for distribution!

The library is open for donation or to pick up candy as follows:
Monday – closed
Tuesday 9:30 am – 12:00 pm, 1:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Wednesday 11:00 am-6:00 pm
Thursday, Friday 9:30 am -12:00 pm, 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Saturday 9:30 am – 1:00 pm
Sunday – closed

Treats can include candy, stickers, pencils, small toys – we have children across many ages and needs – all types of donations are welcome!
