If trick-or-treating isn’t your thing, join us a screening of Tim Burton’s 1993 classic animated film.

Bored with the same old scare-and-scream routine, Jack Skellington – the Pumpkin King – longs to spread the joy of Christmas. But his merry mission puts Santa in jeopardy and creates a nightmare for good little boys and girls everywhere.

Rated PG, the movie is recommended for ages 8 and up.

Join the R.E.A.D. team at the Waldo Branch the second Saturday each month between September 2014 and April 2015 (excluding December and January) as children read the pooches some prose.
