Haunted Library

October 21, 2022, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The library will close early on Friday, October 21 at 3 pm and re-open at 6 pm transformed into two floors of bone-chilling hauntings!

In the Youth Department, you will find family-friendly frights and be able to participate in a scavenger hunt and listen to not-so-scary stories like The Ghosts Went Floating read aloud.

In the North and South meeting rooms, Chicagoland authors Michael Allen Rose, Daniel Kraus (The Death and Life of Zebulon Finch), Damian Serbu (The Vampire’s Angel), Cynthia Pelayo (Children of Chicago), and John Everson (The House by the Cemetery) will be available to talk horror and will also have books available for purchase.

On the 2nd floor, Glenbard West Theatre students and library staff will enact excerpts from horror stories. Please note that there will be flashing lights and dry ice in use on the 2nd floor.

Visit the library after hours, if you dare!
