This evening, the teens at Cody had their first Haunted House program.
Teens gathered outside the door and waited for the program to start. As they waited, they were able to read the horrifying tale of Librarian Norma Bates.
Once the doors were opened, teens were greeted by a grim hallway full of mysterious creatures and frightening sights.
Teens were met by a skull which gives off a sinister glow.
And by a Grim Reaper with glowing eyes that shrieks and moves as the teens walk by. Although not pictured, the spider that jumps out at the teens as they walk by sent many chills down unsuspecting teens’ necks.
Lit by black lights, all things glow ethereally in the room, including a spider web with terrifying spiders.
Teens peered through the dark, trying to catch a peep of the brains (cauliflower), eyeballs (grapes), and hearts (whole peeled tomatoes) they were feeling in the mystery boxes.
Once the teens had been sufficiently frightened, the lights were turned on so that they could paint mini pumpkins with glow-in-the-dark paint.
Paint some pumpkins.
And take photos with some Halloween props.
A spooky night was had by all. For some teens, this was their favorite program of the year! Now we can’t wait for the next Haunted House at the Cody Library.
