The cost of Halloween costumes can be a burden to a lot of parents' wallets.
Together, the Sioux Land libraries thought of a way to get the costumes your children want with no money out of your pocket. Little firemen and pretty princesses could be seen all over the library this afternoon for National Costume Swap Day.
Over the last month, residents donated old Halloween costumes to the library. On Saturday morning, parents and children had the opportunity to swap their old costumes for new ones.
Senior Librarian, Monique Christensen, said the library says they understand not everyone can afford new costumes every year. They just want to be help to give back to the community.
She said, “I even went out looking just to see if I could augment our donations with some and even at Walmart’s costumes were $22 and a lot of our families just don't have the money."
Those who didn’t donate a costume in advance were still able to come select a costume during the second half of the event
