Richland Library staff are getting in the Halloween spirit by welcoming children to a family-friendly afternoon event. The Not-So-Spooky Halloween Stroll will be held Thursday from 3 to 5 p.m., beginning at the library's main location (1431 Assembly St.). The stroll is geared toward children, and is free and open to the public.
Kids can go trick-or-treating throughout the library, and enjoy holiday-themed activities. Then, children and their families can take a stroll across Assembly Street (assisted by the Columbia Police Department and City Center Partnership Yellow Shirts), to trick-or-treat along the Main Street District.
Participating businesses include:
- The COMET Bus (Parked on Hampton Street & COMET Central)
