The Haunted Library is a teen-led program for children ages 8 to 12. Teens help turn part of the library into a maze; hide in it to spook younger kids; lead groups through the maze; and then help with crafts and games in our community room.
Any day close to Halloween will work, but the program works best after-hours. (In 2015, the event will be held on Friday, Nov. 6.) Since we have shorter weekend hours, Fridays and Saturdays are ideal for this type of program at our library. We have a lot of windows, so having it a little later, from 8 to 9 p.m., makes it more fun..
