Call for candy at Raymond Village Library

What would Halloween be without trick-or-treating? Yet, for many of the children in the mostly rural town of Raymond, trick-or-treating is a difficult proposition when the houses are located on dark roads without sidewalks, and there can be hundreds of feet of dark forest between the jack o’ lanterns sitting on doorsteps.

Happily, the town of Raymond has adopted a tradition of Halloween trick-or-treating on Main Street. The street will be officially closed on Halloween evening as costumed children from Raymond and the surrounding areas flood the area for an evening of festivities.

Of course, this means the residents of Raymond’s Main Street will have hundreds of children knocking on their door on October 31 and asking for candy. If that sounds like a daunting prospect, the Raymond Village Library is here to help!

From now until Halloween, the Raymond Village Library is accepting donations of candy for children. The library distributes candy to the residents of Main Street to help ensure a happy Halloween night for both the little monsters and the neighbors who distribute the treats.

Candy donations can be delivered to the Raymond Village Library at 3 Meadow Road on Monday or Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday from 9 a.m. to noon, or Saturday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
