The CNMI community is invited to join the Joeten-Kiyu Public Library and community partners as they present Book-a-Treat by appointment only—a three-day indoor Halloween extravaganza at the Joeten-Kiyu Public Library.

Book-a-treat by appointment only event will be conducted on the following days:

– Friday, Oct. 29, 2021, from 2:30pm to 6:30pm
– Saturday, Oct. 30, 2021, from 10am to 3pm
– Sunday, Oct. 31, 2021 from 1:00pm to 6:00pm

Book-A-Treat by appointment only is indoor trick or treating at the Joeten-Kiyu Public Library following social distancing, safety, and health measures. Patrons contact the library and “book” one appointment per household. Upon entry to the JKPL, each household is then given up to 30 minutes to go trick or treating in the library and visit the Haunted Library. Book-a-Treat is approved by the Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force.

“2021 marks the second year in which we are hosting this fun version of trick or treating,” said library director Erlinda C. Naputi. “Before Book-a-Treat, we would host the Annual Trunk or Treat at our parking lot, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to change it up by having an alternative with an equal amount of fun. Book-a-Treat is a great way for families to come by and visit your local library and get some Halloween goodies! It presents a convenient option for our community to schedule your trick or treating. During Book-a-Treat, there will be contests for Best Halloween Costume, Best Decorated Community Partner Table, and you can even sign up for a free library card and get a free book from your library. Contact 235-7322 or 7315 to book your appointment at the library today.”

Community partners who are interested in participating and/or sponsoring Book-a-Treat are invited to contact the library at 235-7322/7315 and ask for systems librarian Omar T. Manacop. (PR)
