Missouri Valley College Teacher Education library hosted its first “Spooktacular” on Halloween. Face painting, coloring, book readings, and ghost making were just a couple activities children from the around the community could participate in.
“We also had popcorn and punch for the children and their families,” Kate Reuter, Teacher Education library employee, said.
Batman, butterflies, fairies, pirates and oompa loompas were just some costumes worn by children, but they were not the only ones participating in dressing up for Halloween. Student Affairs Coordinator Emily Fennewald dressed as the “Drop it like its hot” Sun Drop girl, and Bathsheba Love of Library Circulation Services dressed as an angel.
Special Events Coordinator Brian Hampton said the “Spooktacular” is just one of the many events the library hosts for the community, MVC students and faculty.
“We always get a good group of people who participate in our events,” Hampton said.
Other offices that participated in the “Spooktacular” were Student Affairs, the Murrell Library, Business Office, Baity and the Financial Aid office.
