The Natchitoches Parish Library’s (NPL) Halloween costume checkout has returned for its sixth year! There are a variety of costumes for all ages, for infants to adults. Costumes are on display racks in the children’s area on the first floor of the main branch in Natchitoches and may be brought to the children’s circulation desk for checkout. The Northeast Branch (NEB), in Campti, also has costumes available for checkout.

Costumes are available on a first come basis, so patrons are encouraged to come early for the widest selection. Adult patrons will be able to checkout up to two costumes per adult card. Costumes will be due six weeks from the checkout date. Costumes are available for checkout through Saturday, Oct. 30 and must be returned in an unsoiled and undamaged condition.

Costume checkouts, like all library services, are offered at no cost to Natchitoches Parish residents. If you do not have a library card, there is no charge to sign up for one at either location. To get a library card, bring a current photo ID showing your correct address to take advantage of your local library.
