A couple of families have asked if the library will be holding a costume exchange this year. The library has decided to skip the Costume Exchange and Toy Exchange so that we will be able to offer other special events such as the Back to the Future Celebration and the Star Wars Celebration.
If you are still looking for a Costume Exchange, the Plainfield Park District is collecting costumes through October 14 for a swap the morning of October 17. Details are also available in this Chicago Tribune article.
You might also be interested in signing up for the Bolingbrook Freecycle group, which allows members to offer items they no longer need and request items they want.
If you know of other costume swap events in the area, please let me know and I will be happy to share the information.
