Program Description


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, find family-friendly frights, participate in a scavenger hunt, and listen to not-so-scary stories like The Ghosts Went Floating read aloud.

In the lobby, 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 talk horror and have books available for purchase.

In the North and South meeting rooms, watch movies from the Disney's Halloween Spooktacular binge box.

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!
