Park County library, treasurer's office go all out for Halloween

Halloween came a little early to some of the Park County government offices in Cody.

With the spooky holiday falling on a Saturday, employees at both the Park County Treasurer's Office and the Park County Library decided to celebrate today (Friday) by donning a variety of costumes.

Each employee dressed up as a different character from the classic novel and movie: the Cowardly Lion, Tin Man, Scarecrow, Glinda the Good Witch of the North, a winged monkey and even as the yellow brick road itself.

The decor wasn't hindering the office from issuing new registrations and other usual business, though customers did seem to be smiling more than usual.

"Got to have fun," Poley explained. She added that her office celebrates all of the holidays and that they'd soon be brainstorming ideas to decorate for the Christmas season.

While they didn't go with one unified theme, employees over at the Park County Library also got into the Halloween spirit with a staff-wide costume contest. Library patrons were asked to cast a vote for their favorite costume throughout the day.

Outfits included several children's book characters, a "Book Review Queen," a gypsy, a magic genie, a sorceress, a geisha and Princess Leia.
