We asked libraries to tweet us pictures of their Halloween library displays. Here is what they shared.
When it comes to creating Halloween displays, librarians are creepin’ it real this year! Here’s a look at some of the fa-boo-lous displays that libraries in the Twitterverse shared with EBSCO:
Brandon Public Library curated a collection of “books that go bump in the night” for its Halloween display. Surrounding a cauldron of eyeballs and bottles of witches’ brew are novels by Stephen King and a fang-tastic assortment of books about vampires and other monsters. The library also set up a display devoted to true crime novels.
Scott County Public Library in Georgetown, Kentucky, is inviting patrons to “scare up a good book” this Halloween. Their spooky display includes books such as Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Cat in an Orange Twist by Carole Nelson Douglas.
Librarians at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee, wants to make sure students “carve out reading time” during the academic year. This boo-tiful display features thrilling reads such as Bram Stoker’s Dracula with a few horror movies — “Psycho” anyone? — mixed in.
We even received a #trickortweet from across the pond! The Learning Zone at The College Merthyr Tydfil in Wales created a book display of gothic fiction such as Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights — which set on the moors of Yorkshire, England — and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson.
EBSCO provides several resources that can help libraries enhance and promote their collections during Halloween and throughout the calendar year.
