Did we miss something?

Although we've attempted to provide a comprehensive list, it's a difficult task to track down all the spooky books in our extensive catalog and clearly some must have slipped through the cracks, especially with new books being added all the time. If you come across something that's not our our list please contact the guide admin at  

Looking for more?

Looking for more spookiness? Be sure to check out our Reader's Advisory guide for horror that covers everything from board books all the way up to adult fiction and non-fiction. We also have a guide showcasing supernatural humor titles for teens and adults.

Upcoming Maintenance

On October 25 the library will be moving to a new catalog system that will be more intuitive and user friendly, unfortunately this means the migration will break all of the previous links in our libguides and blogs referencing links to books in our system. Our team will be working to fix the issue as soon as possible, but in the meantime you may experience broken links while browsing, we apologize for the inconvenience.

This Guide

Fall is a favorite time of year for many kids and adults and books about Halloween are always in demand!
