Families from Bryan-College Station dressed as an and eclectic group of superheroes, werewolves, zombies and astronauts, converged on the plaza outside the library for an evening ofHalloween
The Bush library plays host to families for holidays all throughout the year, including Fourth of July and Easter.
Warren Finch, director of the Bush library, said these events are a way to say thank you to its supporting
“We’re a part of the community,” Finch said. “We get a lot of support from the local folks, a lot of support from Texas A&M, support from College Station and Bryan and it’s kind of a way to give something back.”
Attendees were encouraged to do some giving of their own and donate canned goods and other non-perishables to the Food for Families holiday food drive, which helps feed families in the Brazos Valley.
