Jen Corace, illustrator of Gibbous Mooney Wants to Bite You!, a story about an incorrigible young vampire who cannot wait to try out his new grown-up fangs. Other featured spooky books include Creepy Monsters, Sleepy Monsters: a lullaby by local favorite, illustrator Kelly Murphy.

Haunted Art in the Park
Following Storytime, at Haunted Art in the Park kids can work on creating an interactive haunted house in Burnside Park with artist Alison Paul! Also learn about our life-size human anatomy skeleton, Mr. Bones (and his guts!) as science educator Nora Barre explains the function of bones and explores human anatomy! Do a fun skeleton craft to hang in the trees and spookify the park!

More fun: Explore our Spooky playground, get FREE Halloween facepainting by artist RattScalion, dance to our special Halloweenie sound-track and enjoy delicious fall treats from food trucks!
