We’re getting into that time of year when the days are shorter and cooler. The stores are stocking up on apple cider and pumpkins. Children are getting excited to go trick-or-treating. People are decorating for Halloween…and there’s a stray black cat hanging around the neighborhood. The only thing that’s missing is a spooky story! So I polled the CCPL staff and in this post we are sharing some of our favorite reads that are a bit mysterious, thrilling, chilling, scary or spooky.
