There is something “chilling” in the air at the Loup City Library. Stop in and grab a book (deeply scary or scary-light) off of our Halloween display! If you like a good old ghost story, check out “The Fate of Mercy Alban” by Wendy Webb or “The Haunting of Maddy Clare” by Simone St. James. If you like dark, gothic vampire tales: “The Historian” by Elizabeth Kostova is sure to hit the spot. If you are looking for a family-friendly haunting, check out “Casper” on DVD for a one week rental.
