The Grayson County Public Library held a Decorate and Take Cupcake Party on Friday and Saturday.

According to the Children's Program Director, Laura Lindsey, the two-day total participation for the event was 293 people.

Frosting, sprinkles and Halloween decorations were available for participants to decorate their cupcakes and they were also provided with cupcake boxes so they could take the cupcakes home when they left.

In addition to decorating Halloween themed cupcakes, children were able to color and make dot paintings in the juvenile section of the library and decorate lighted pingpong balls and play cornhole in the teen room.

In addition to big events, the library offers fun activities for children every week.

According to Lindsey, there are still spots available in the toddler and preschool classes. Toddler time, birth to two-years-old, is held on Wednesdays from 10-10:30 a.m. and there are also openings for three-years-old to preschool age on Tuesdays at 6 p.m.

Additionally, the library is currently taking donations of packages of new underwear for Boys & Girls sizes 4-16 for their "Drop your Drawers" campaign until Dec. 15. They are hoping to collect 500 pairs. The donated underwear will be distributed to local elementary schools.

The library's next big event will be Hometown Christmas in December. More details will be provided soon.
