Upon arrival, a bag will be hung from your side view mirror to collect treats.

Halloween for Teens & Adults

Haunted Library: After Hours

Last year we brought you a fun Haunted Library experience walk through attraction. Due to COVID 19, we are unable to bring it back for 2020. However, we have something even creepier in store for you. Christian Cox will come into the library after hours with a flashlight tour of the building, so you can see what all goes on Halloween night.

Tune in for the Facebook LIVE event and brave the flashlight tour of the library after hours. Watch to see if you notice anything paranormal. This is a rare opportunity to be in the library after hours searching in the dark.

Will we have any ghostly encounters? Tune in to see…
