Most folks like a good ghost story, especially around Halloween.  Looking for something new to give you the chills?  These novels and graphic novels featuring ghosts are so good it's scary!

Welcome to the ninth week of the Fall 2020 storytime season!  This week's theme is Just a Little Spooky.  Access the official handout for additional activities and book recommendations.  Supplies for this week's craft and hands-on activity are part of our Full Moon Fun-tivities pack.  These packs will be available for pickup at the Kid Zone desk all week long!  Remember, storytimes will post to our HPL Kids Facebook page at 10:30 a.m. on each of these days. 

The National Museum of Natural History is located in Washington, D.C.  This Smithsonian Institution, like many museums during this time of pandemic, is closed to the public.  But you can tour their online galleries quite easily.  I highly recommend you explore Bone Hall, an exhibit devoted to a wide variety of skeletons. Many of the skeletons in the Bone Hall have been on view since 1881 and represent an unparalleled study collection of every major group of vertebrate animals.
