TUCKAHOE, N.Y. – Princesses, gorillas, Jedi knights and a banana made their way to the Tuckahoe Public Library on Friday morning for a special, spooky story time.

Children’s librarian Ellen Tannenbaum – donning a witch outfit of her own – hosted nearly two dozen costumed children, reading Halloween-themed books to get the kids ready for the holiday.

“This gives them a safe outlet to wear their costumes and celebrate Halloween,” she said. “It’s a festive atmosphere, it’s fun, and it’s definitely not going to rain on us.”

Tannenbaum read “Little Goblins Ten,” “10 Trick-Or-Treaters” and “Even Monsters Need Haircuts,” while singing popular children’s songs with the kids and their parents.

At the end of the event, the children received a collection of treats, including pretzels, Hershey's Kisses, small toys and bubbles.

“This is bigger than our usual story times. We had 30 people registered,” Tannenbaum said. “It’s a fun, safe event for kids under the age of 5.”
