‘Tis the season…

The season of FEAR is upon us. If you’re in search of thrills and chills, you’re in luck– creative teens around the city are hosting library hauntings to inspire horror in the hearts of fear-seekers.

This Saturday, October 26, check out the first ever Haunted House at CLP- East Liberty, brought to you by the East Liberty Teen Advisory Council. This fear-fest will feature horrific tales, ghoulish delights, and even…robotics? Gotta see it to believe it. You can drop in between 10 AM and 5 PM on Saturday at 130 S. Whitfield Street to catch some of the frightful (& FREE!) fun.

Take a spine-tinging stroll through three mini-rooms of terror as you delve into a tale of madness and obsession. Can you keep your cool as the restless spirits surround you? Don’t let your mind wander too far…they say there’s something lurking in the woods.

Check out how the teens of CLP- Carrick have transformed an ordinary room into a chamber of fear– don’t miss the Haunted Library at 1811 Brownsville Road.

Wednesday, October 30, 5-7:30 PM
Thursday, October 31, 5-7:30 PM
Saturday, November 2, 2-4:30 PM
