Happy Halloween

James Earl Jones reading Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven”

With Halloween just a week away, what better time than now to check out some spooky stories from the library? We have great collections (both print, electronic, and audio books) from authors such as Edgar Allan Poe and Steven King to books that inspired cult movies, such as The Exorcist.  We also have some classic horror movies you

can check out, including Poltergeist and Shaun of the Dead.

Not into reading or watching scary stuff? You could always investigate the origins of the Halloween holiday.
