The local library has some sort of city wide kid’s book club that promotes the reading of specific books to the entire community. Recently, the library chose to recommend votes after young library patrons first voted from among six or so choices. The winning choice was The Sisters Grimm. Apparently this book or the original Brothers Grimm writings were the inspiration for the library Halloween party. All three floors of the library were decked out with scenes from Grimm stories. The first floor had various carnival-type games (e.g., ring tosses) and decorated stations from which children could get candy from costumed teens. The second floor had more carnival games secreted among the rows of books. A side room was set aside for the making of crafts. A DJ took over a large room and blasted Halloween favorites such as Thriller and Ghostbusters. The basement floor containing the children’s reading room was done over with a haunted woods theme. Children and parents were lead through the “woods” by a teen “huntsman.” It was quite a production and surprisingly harrowing for a library haunted house event.
