Halloween Happenings

We have a lot of tricks and treats up our sleeve for our friends in October! In addition to these events for all our patrons, don’t forget to check our Events calendar for special Storytimes and all the Teentober activities.


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!

Click here to open our Candy Madness survey to choose your favorite candies as they go head to head. Will your favorite candy win the tournament? Fill out your prediction bracket below by printing the one below or pick one up at the library for your chance to win a candy basket. Win the candy basket by selecting the winners. If more than one person picks the winner a drawing will be held to pick the winner of the candy basket.


Guess how many M&Ms

Wow! October is the month for treats and boy do we have some here at the Library! How many M&Ms are in that big jar? Come into Bennington Public Library and write down your guess. Those with the closest guess will win the jar of M&Ms!

Winners will be announced at our Freaky Fun Friday Halloween Party on Friday, October 29. Happy guessing!
