Libraries are often the focal points for the spooky, mythical, and gruesome. Special Collections are no different, and we’re celebrating the spirit of Halloween in style!
“Ghostly Encounters” will feature haunted places at the University of Maryland. Visit their site every Wednesday, and be prepared to think of your classroom in a new, terrifying, way.
Spooky Special Collections Display:
Celebrate Halloween with the Spooky Special Collections display in the Maryland Room of Hornbake Library! Our current display hosts girls’ series books. Each of these books (from the Rose and Joseph Pagnani Collection) features a heroine forced to use her skill and resourcefulness to face the mysterious criminal unknown. Especially enticing are the colorful, suspenseful covers.
Come back next week for rare books from our collection with a decidedly grisly twist. The display runs through November 2nd.
Visit the WorldCat UMD list of items featured in our Spooky Special Collections display, and a list for books about the state of Maryland’s haunted locations and local ghouls.
