(KETK) - Tyler Tx — What is your favorite thing to dress up as?
For one East Texas little girl, finding her dream Halloween costume will be easy at the Tyler Public Library. They are starting a new Halloween costume exchange where parents and kids can shop for free.
"Offering a program like this can open up a door of fun for a family," said Linda Gray. "And allow them to participate in something that they thought this year they were going to have to do without."
The way it works is simple. Bring in your new or gently used Halloween costumes from past years and they will give you a ticket. Then, on October 12, you can come and shop at the Tyler public library -- for free! And even if you do not donate a costume, you can come too!
"We just ask for a donation starting at two dollars," Gray said.
Which is a whole lot less than what mother of eight, Denise Young, says she would have spent on costumes.
"If I were to put all eight of my kids in dress up clothes," Young said. "We would be talking three or four hundred dollars."
Costumes the kids usually only wear, once.
"They're cute," Young said. "But sometimes you don't want to spend the money because you only get one wear out of it."
So no matter what you are looking for, you can find it free at the Tyler Public Library, just do not forget to donate too.
