Spooktober

We’re a week into October, and things are getting wonderfully spooky around the Teen Room.

Check out a creepy-thriller-horror book from our “Books to give you the creepy crawlies” display to start.

On Oct. 6th we made our very own “Monster Book of Monsters” replica from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban! This furry facade conceals an inner compartment to hide treasures and secrets.

Also this week: Join the Teen Library Council on Thurs. Oct. 8, 4-5pm to help make the Teen Room look scary and help us prepare for the Teen Halloween Bash on Thurs. Oct. 29!

Hope everyone’s having a great Fall Break so far. See you at the library!

– Sarah
