Every Thursday night starting at 6:30, the Central Library at the corner of 5th and Grand Avenue in Grand Junction host fun activities for the entire family. The month of October is no different as they are getting ready for the Grand Junction Comic Con with drawing, fun yoga for kids and families, creative Lego builds and of course, getting ready for Halloween.
