For most kids, Halloween is all about fun. But for some children - especially younger ones - it can also be frightening.

That's why the Catonsville Branch Library is inviting kids ages 2 to 6 to celebrate the coming holiday with "not-so-scary stories" - tales that highlight Halloween fun instead of fear. Next week, the library will present two events called "Halloween Stories for Wee Folks."

According to librarian Rodney Campbell, the stories will be fun and lighthearted. "We won't read the kind of stories that would appeal to older kids," he says. "These will be funny, easy books."

One book Campbell plans to read is The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams, a story that encourages kids not to be afraid.

After the story time, there will be a costume parade around the library.

"Halloween Stories for Wee Folks" will be held at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday and 7 p.m. Wednesday, 1100 Frederick Road.

Call 410-887-0951.
