Spooks in the Stacks! October 30th
For the second year, Carmichael Library will be open late for a special Halloween event that we call Spooks in the Stacks! The thrills and chills will take place Friday, October 30th from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. The library is located at the corner of Highland Street and Bloch Street on the University of Montevallo campus. Attendance is free.
We've got an exciting, educational, and largely new program lined up so even if you joined us last year, you won't want to miss this special night of Carmichael Hall hauntings. Birmingham Paranormal will be on hand to play recordings of the paranormal sounds and activity they've documented in King House and Main Hall. Walking tours of the campus will take visitors directly to the sites of some of UM’s most famous ghost stories. Finally, the library will host a costume contest with prizes provided by the Montevallo Chamber of Commerce.
Spooks in the Stacks! is sponsored by the Montevallo Chamber of Commerce and the UM Office of Student Life.
Stay tuned to this blog (or our Facebook Fan Page) for more information as the night before Halloween approaches. In the meantime, mark the date and plan to join us on October 30th--if you dare!
