Following the criteria listed below, bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10. We’ll happily hang them in our window for all Library Square traffic to see.

It’s time again for the annual Halloween Costume Swap! This event is an opportunity to donate a gently-used Halloween costume and find a new one! Costumes for children, teens and adults are all accepted, and should be in good, clean condition.
Salt Lake County Library’s Costume Swap will take place Saturday, October 17 from 10 am -12 noon at the library’s Viridian Event Center in West Jordan. Individuals wanting to recycle and reuse by swapping out their gently-used Halloween costumes for a different one can drop off their costume at any Salt Lake County Library branch between September 30th – October 15th. They’ll receive a token to bring to the Viridian Center on October 17th and redeem it for another costume of their choosing selected from all the other costumes brought in for the “swap.”
Individuals who would like to simply donate a costume are welcome to do so as most remaining costumes will be donated to local charities. Those who don’t find a suitable “swap” on October 17th will be offered a book sale coupon good for a one-time use of up to $5 at their local branch’s book sale.
Drop off library locations: Any of Salt Lake County Library’s 18 branches

Add some excitement to your usual weekend plans with your dog, and do it for a great cause! At Strut Your Mutt, you can enjoy a leisurely community dog walk or a timed 5k run (with or without your dog), and then hang out at a festival for all things dog (and dog-lovers). This life-saving annual event, which includes doggie yoga, pet portraits, refreshments, music, contests, post-run pet massages and more, is for a great cause — ending the killing of pets in America’s shelters. As one of 12 events happening across the country, your local Strut Your Mutt event provides a platform for local rescues and shelters to raise money for providing critical funding for lifesaving adoption, spay/ neuter programs, and more.
Join us for our annual Strut Your Mutt dog walk, chip timed 5K run and festival for the whole family!

Although it will be hard to surpass the approximately 2,400 people and their 1,600 dogs who came out to strut last year. Together, we raised nearly $190,000. Think we can top that? Then get ready for Best Friends Animal Society’s 20th Strut Your Mutt in Salt Lake City.
