Spooks in the Stacks Is Almost Here!

If you've been following our blog this week you may have seen our Spooks in the Stacks countdown clock in the sidebar. Soon it will be less than 24 hours before the haunting begins!

Don't miss us tomorrow night starting at 7:30. Witness the thrills of Carmichael Hall and enjoy our new take on one of UM's longest running traditions: the retelling of ghost stories. Also happening tomorrow night:

- Meet members of Birmingham Paranormal, who will be on hand to play sound clips of the spooky activity that they've recorded in UM's King House.

- Observe the work of Dr. Eric Vaccarella's Spanish students in the library foyer. Ten ceremonial altars are now on display as part of the library's annual Day of the Dead celebration.

- Watch an episode of "Real Scary Stories" that aired in the year 2000. The show was taped in Main Hall and other campus locales and later aired on cable television.

- Peruse original documents that our librarians have located in the University Archives, including some of the papers that concern Montevallo's legendary ghost stories. You'll be able to look at these real relics on the library's Ground Floor.

Lastly, be warned that we've got a couple of surprises that we're not going to reveal until you walk through the doors of Carmichael Hall. Tomorrow night, enter the library at your own risk!
