Haunted Library II

Yes, we're doing it again- haunting the library for one night only!  Saturday, Oct. 30th from 7:30 to 9.  Tours are every 15 minutes.  The St. Olaf Theatre Club has been advising us on make-up, costumes and settings!  Thanks again for a grant from the Northfield Healthy Community Initiative- with a $1 (or a food donation to the Nfld Food Shelf) you can tour the haunted library the enjoy some creepy snacks and games in the meeting room.  It will be scary- for people in grade 6 and up.
