Warren County High School was full of many different characters from many different books during its Book Character Day on Friday. 

Book Character Day was a way for students to get creative and into the Halloween Spirit. Those who dressed up were encouraged to come to the library for a treat and to get pictures taken. 

“We love interacting with the students and to be able to see their creativity come out and it is just something fun to do kind of in the middle of all this classwork and testing,” said librarian Stephanie Doak.

The library was packed with costumed students. So many participated that they had to move out into the lobby. There were students dressed as characters from Winnie the Pooh, Scooby Doo, and the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. There was even a student dressed as the Grinch. Doak was happy with how many students participated.  

“It encourages students who maybe wouldn’t have visited the library to at least come in and see us, even if they don’t check out a book,” said Doak.

Many of the Warren County High School staff also participated in Book Character Day. Among the staff dressed up, teacher Lauren Wood came dressed as Velma from Scooby Doo and custodian Sheryl Tate came dressed as a troll doll. 

According to the staff, Book Character Day was big success and the turnout was great.
