Halloween Party at Mason!
haunted library

Come celebrate Halloween at the library with your community this Staurday, November 1st! We’ll start with a family program at 5:00-6:00pm with premier storyteller Tim Van Egmond.  At 6:30, the grown-up’s party begins with performances by Berkshire Sings and Berkshire Ukelele Band. The free party includes a buffet with fiery grilled quesadillas, the devil’s q-tips, warm cider, beer and wine. The lights will be off and projections, including the silent film Nosferatu, will play against the library walls while a dimly lit bat chandelier dangles from the center of the room. Costumes are encouraged. Please call Holly Hamer 413-528-3122 for further information or to volunteer.
