Happy Halloween!

The day has finally come. Are you in costume? Are you coming to the library tonight to Trick-or-Treat?

No matter. Either way, we wanted to offer some more spooky Halloween content for your reading/listening pleasure. Since we’ve previously offered so much fiction content, how about some non-fiction?

A non-fiction podcast about some of the eerier things that happened around the world. And, what do you know, there are episodes about Vermont history!

 #67 The Red Coats (Bennington)
Trick or Treat 2017 Set 1 (White River Junction)
#84 A Family Affair (Chittenden)
#90 Mind the Gap (Lake Champlain)
#97 Misplaced (Manchester)

This British podcast brings a perspective to crime that Americans might not otherwise see listening to the plethora of American true crime podcasts out there.

A podcast about people facing their fears and researching the unknown, there really is something for everyone in this eerie podcast. For instance, Do Crows Mourn Their Dead?, Spirits of the Past, and Call 601-2-SATAN-2.

RML Resources: Halloween Edition

Looking for some fun Halloween activities beyond trick or treating?

Try an old black and white horror movie!

House on Haunted Hill (1959)
Frederick Loren has invited five strangers to a party of a lifetime. He is offering each of them $10,000 if they can stay the night in a house.

The Phantom of the Opera (1925)
At the Opera of Paris, a mysterious phantom threatens a famous lyric singer, Carlotta and thus forces her to give up her role (Marguerite in Faust) for unknown Christine Daae.

Gather some friends up and play a spooky game!

Cover for the Dread RPG


Werewolf – a party game for 7-17 players, where all you need to play is a couple scraps of paper. This is a great game to play huddled around a campfire in the dark. (Video instructions here.)

Dread – a role-playing game for more ambitious gamers where you create characters, then work together to escape a horror-movie scenario created by the host. All you need is some printed character sheets and a stack of totally-not-Jenga® blocks. (See an example of the gameplay here.)

Or you could always throw a Murder Mystery Party!

Read/listen to horror stories!

936full-scary-stories-to-tell-in-the-dark-cover - Optionated

Gather some friends together and tell horror stories! We have some real classics like Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark available for check-out at our library, or you can also find plenty online.

Or listen to professionals tell them! (See also this site and this one).


Make some spooky snacks!

Scary recipes found here.

There are so many spooky recipes out there that you can try! Here are just a few recipes you could try.

Do some Halloween-themed fiber arts!スクリーンショット 2018-10-13 7.53.48.png

Do you knit? Maybe you prefer crochet? Maybe you like a bit of both?

Or you could always just try a regular craft that does not involve fiber. (I won’t tell if you won’t.)




Have a wonderful Halloween everyone! And don’t forget to come trick or treating at RML! We are open just for the holiday!
