Halloween Spookiness!

Join the Teen Tellers - and me - on Tuesday Oct. 19th for SCARY STORIES! at 7 pm.  The teens like to tell frightening stories, just be forewarned.  We are suggesting that these stories are best for ages 7 and up.  Call the Youth Services Department at 610-398-1361 ext 19, if you'd like to come.  Or just show up!

Search for Ghosts and Ghouls (and cats and bats, skeletons and scarecrows) between Oct. 15th and Oct. 30th.  Each creepy creature will ask a question.  Do the research and write the answer on the answer sheet.  Then turn the answers in for a startling surprise!

Halloween books are flying out of here like bats out of a belfry!  Here are some new titles to look for - or place on hold.

AlphaOops! H is for Halloween by Alethea Kontis. The alphabet puts on a Halloween pageant and chaos ensues.   

Broom, zoom by Caron Lee Cohen.  A little witch and a monster fight over the broom.  Simple text and bright pictures make this book perfect for sharing with little ones.

Dark emperor and other poems of night by Joyce Sidman.  Poems and facts about how animals and plants behave at night.

Vampire boy's good night by Lisa Brown.  Are children REAL?  Bela the vampire and his friend, Morgan the witch, investigate one night and end up at a Halloween party.

Zen ghosts by Jon Muth.  Stillwater, the giant panda, shares a zen "ghost" story.
