Spook Night

About: We are so excited to announce our first ever Spook Night at the Greenwood County Library! This will be an outdoor event with a Halloween Pumpkin Contest, Magician, games, and more!

Rainy Day: In the event of bad weather, Spook Night will move into the American Veteran's Auditorium. We will limit the amount of people in the Auditorium and allow them a specific amount of time to play games, watch the magician, and tour the pumpkin patch before the next group. 


  • Children under 11 must be accompanied by an adult AT ALL TIMES

  • All candy and swag will be available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST

Show us your best Halloween Pumpkin!

Bring your best decorated pumpkin to our Halloween Pumpkin Patch and show off your skills. Spooky or cute, you can decide, but will you have the best Halloween Pumpkin?
