Something's Skull-king Around the Free Library this Halloween...

By Peter SM Mon, October 30, 2017

Howllo Boils and Ghouls!,

Welcome back to the Free Library of Frightadelphia's bloodcurdling blog during this most haunted of holiday seasons, Halloween!

Did you hear that unsettling sound? Perhaps it was just the wind... or perhaps it was something skull-king around the library stacks late at night...

Don't let that stop you from visiting your neighborhood library for Halloween celebrations ranging from creepy crafts and spooky storytimes to costume parades and even a Zombie Prom!

Don't forget to bring home some terrifying tomes from our chilling catalog collections for some nighttime reading this All Hallows' Eve. Whether it contains monsters, zombiesghosts, witches, graveyards, haunted houses, or the supernatural—we're just batty about boo-ks!


If you can't make it into one of our libraries, you can still join in on the frightening fun at home—all you need is your library card. Stream some screams and scares with Hoopla;
there's plenty of children's Halloween-themed videos to choose from or more macabre movies for adults.

And if you need a spooky soundtrack for the big night, there are plenty of scary sounds and putrid playlists that can be found on the Free Library of Philadelphia's Spotify channel!

Happy Halloween!
