     Although you can't tell by the temperature outside, fall is underway and with that comes the time of frightful fun that only comes with Halloween! Regardless of the age range or type of material you're looking for, there are some fun and easy ways to browse and find the perfect thing to check out for you or any member of your family. Through the library's website, we have numerous research guides, called Libguides, on a variety of different topics compiled by our knowledgeable staff; several of which written by yours truly. You can access them here. For this festive time of year especially, I have made several guides to make browsing our collection even easier.
