#Scary Teen Reads

Do you like the supernatural? We've got some thrilling (and bone-chilling) reads waiting just for you! Grab a book if you dare... you might be in for a good scare!


#Join us at Comic Club on Halloween Night

Join us for a special Halloween edition of Comic Club Graphic Novel Book Club on Tuesday, October 31 at 6 p.m. at the Willow Branch Library. We will be reading and discussing Through the Woods by Emily Carroll. This collection of five spine-tingling short stories include

  • A wealthy young woman weds a man in a lonely old house, and at night she hears a forlorn song of unavenged murder lilting from the walls.
  • A girl spends the summer with her brother and his fiancée, who is not what she seems.
  • Three sisters wait for their father to return, but one by one they disappear with a tall man in a broad-brimmed hat.

Note: Comic Club is open to teens and adults and typically meets on the second Tuesday of each month.

Sign up for Teen Think Tank and be the first to know about upcoming teen programs!
