Events and Programs

Summer Scares



This summer the library is getting spooky!

We will be hosting THREE book groups across multiple ages, selected from the Summer Scares 2024 reading list. Summer Scares is an annual reading program from Horror Writers Association, in partnership with United for Libraries, Book Riot, Booklist, and NoveList, which provides titles selected by a panel of authors and library workers and is designed to promote Horror as a great reading option for all ages, during any time of the year.

Heather, the Youth Services Librarian, will be leading both the family and YA groups, and Meghan, the Information Services Librarian, will be leading the adult group.

Participants will read the book on their own and then gather on the program date for a book discussion (and activity!). Registration is required for these programs.
