CHAPEL HILL – The Orange County Public Library will celebrate Halloween this year by hosting a variety of fun activities and events.
All the events that the OCPL will host are free to the public, and people of all ages are encouraged to attend. The first event, Countdown to Halloween, takes place on Monday October 21 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the OCPL main library.
The library will screen the world premiere of the Teen Murder Mystery 2013 Film, and hold an after-party including a costume contest, zombie mayhem, and Halloween trivia. For more information click here.
Chapel Hill will begin its annual leaf collection on Monday October 21 and continue through late February. Residents may place loose leaves and pine straw that is free of debris behind the curb or drainage ditch for pick-up.
Crews will not pick up yard waste that is placed in plastic bags since they are often not compostable. Instead residents may use 30-gallon paper bags, leave piles, rigid containers, or roll carts available through Public Works Department.
Pick-up for yard waste will be on Thursday for residents who have Monday garbage service, and Friday for residents with Tuesday garbage service. For more information you can click here.
Chapel Hill transit Safe Ride will not operate on Friday and Saturday this weekend, due to fall break.
The Safe Ride will operate on Halloween from 11:00 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. along detoured routes. The Safe Ride will not serve downtown Chapel Hill but will have stops near downtown. For more information click here.
