WATERTOWN — The Watertown and Oakville Libraries will offer children’s programs during October focused on celebrating fall.

The libraries have created a Finding Fall Scavenger Hunt, which will begin October 12 and continue through October 22.

Children ages 3-12 are invited to participate.

Registration is available at the libraries where participants can pick up a bag with a list of items to find.

Upon completion, children will bring their items to either library to be checked, receive instructions for crafts to be made from the found items and have a chance to win a gift card to G’s Burgers.

The Oakville Branch Library will host its fall story time at 11 a.m. every Thursday, October 21 through November 18, for children ages 3-5.

Each week will feature a different story and themed craft.

No registration is required; however, children must be accompanied by a caregiver.

The Oakville Library’s annual Halloween bash will start at 11 a.m. Thursday, October 28. Children are encouraged to wear their costumes while enjoying fun games and treats.

Pumpkin painting and decorating will be held at the Watertown Library the week leading into Halloween.
