Dare to Beware

The library closes at 6 pm...but when the wind starts to blow, the leaves begin to rustle, and Friday the 13th falls in October, the library stays open for some spooky (and not-so-spooky) fun! Take a plunge in our haunted Duck Pond (no swimsuits required) to hunt for creepy creatures, muster the courage to encounter some sensational spooks, and rally with at a real-life reptile show. This after-hours event is sure to be a scream for kids, teens and families.
