Halloween Vibes~

October is a time for spooky horror movies and dressing up in costumes, but there are some underlying traditions and elements within these activities that we can grow from. In this virtual library display, we will be exploring the role of race as it is reflected in horror cinema.

Come check it out! Listen to a podcast or two on the topic, check out a few tracks librarian Adrianna Martinez has picked out to get the spooky vibes going, and watch a scary movie while live texting the homies.


Thank you for stopping by to check it out. Wishing you candy, and hot cocoa on this Halloween!
