It’s a gloomy Saturday here at the library, which got me thinking about spooky stories, which made me think “It was a dark and stormy night…”, which led me to research the origins of the famous first line. The phrase was the opening line of the popular book Paul Clifford, published in 1830 by Edward Bulwer-LyttonThough not as well-known as his famous pal Charles Dickens, Bulwer-Lytton is also responsible for the much-quoted adage “the pen is mightier than then sword.”

Now that my brief but educational detour is over let me get back to the matter at hand-scary stories. Tis the season for spooky and if you are motivated enough to leave the cozy comfort of home to visit us at the library you might want to stock up on some pre-Halloween reading supplies. We have everything from the classic tales of horror by H.P. Lovecraft to modern-day classics by Stephen King. We have zombies, vampires, werewolves, and good old-fashioned ghost stories. Just let us now how you want the bejeezus scared out of you and we’ll do the rest!
