We have had to make the difficult decision to cancel our annual Halloween party this year.  In its stead we will be having a Halloween Costume Photo Contest.  Photos can be submitted by PM to the Fort Ashby Library Facebook page between October 1 and October 21, 2020.  Contest rules and information will be posted on our Facebook page or you can pick up a flyerat the Library.  Pictures will be posted from October 23-30, 2020.  The photos with the most likes in each category will win.  Winners will be announced October 31, 2020.  Sponsored by the Friends of the Fort Ashby Library.            Children who visit the library between October 26 and October 31 will receive a free book and treat bag so be sure to stop by!
