Halloween Happenings

In order to keep our community safe, there will be no Halloween Party this year as we have in the past. But we are still excited for our other fun Halloween activities!


Take-Home Goodie Bags

Starting the week of October 19th, come into Bennington Library and pick up a fun-filled goodie bag! This bag includes all sorts of treats and a mini pumpkin courtesy of Jilian’s Produce 156th and Fort. Happy Halloween from BPL!

One goodie bag per child. Available while supplies last.


“Trick or Trunk” hosted by Bennington Jaycees

Bennington Public Library will be a part of the “Trick or Trunk” hosted by Bennington Jaycees. Come join us from 2:00-4:00 pm on Halloween, Saturday October 31st, for a fun and safe daytime event. Located on Main Street (South 2nd Street) in Downtown Bennington.


Guess the weight of the Great Pumpkin + Guess how many M&Ms

Wow! How much does this Great Pumpkin weigh? And how many M&Ms are in that big jar? Come into Bennington Public Library and write down your guess. Those with the closest guesses for each will win the pumpkin or the jar of M&Ms! And a big THANK YOU to Jilian’s Produce 156th and Fort for donating the Great Pumpkin!

Winners will be announced the morning of Thursday October 29th. Please come into the library to pick up your prize. Happy guessing!


Halloween Candy Madness

In this tournament, we will determine the best Halloween candy through a 16-candy, single-elimination tournament where YOU are the judge! At the end of each round, half the contested candies will be eliminated until a winner is declared! Many candies will compete, but only one will win!
