Halloween stories in the library!

Halloween is almost upon us and what a perfect time to delve into the spooky areas of our library collection to see what you can borrow to scare your friends!

The House on the Hill by Kyle Mewburn & illustrated by Sarah Davis is available to borrow from the Kelvin Grove and Caboolture Curriculum Collections. It is a rhyming picture book for students in primary school, but there is no reason adults can’t enjoy it too.

American Horror Story is a spooky television series to get into if you haven’t already and nothing beats a few episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Of course, nothing beats reading a good book from the king of horror – from Carrie to The Shining and The Dark Tower series, there is always something to read from the prolific and deliciously unsettling Stephen King.

Don’t forget we have many Ebook collections for you to find a thrilling scare and if you’re looking for online videos we have access to The Darkside a film retelling various Indigenous ghost stories from around Australia.
