All Hallow's Read

To celebrate Halloween the 7th graders came to the library for creepy book trailers and to share ghost stories. Middle schoolers love Halloween and love to be scared so we had a great time.
Here are some of the book trailers I shared.

I love this book and think the book trailer is one of the best I've ever seen.

This was one of my favorite creepy books from my summer reading.

A few years old, but still has a long waiting list at my school and when the movie comes out it will resurge in popularity. This is also a wonderfully made trailer.

You can't show creepy book trailers without talking about Mary Downing Hahn. Always a favorite at my school.

Another book that is a few years old, but the sequel From Bad to Cursed came out this year which generated more interest. Great cover!

I also showed this video just for fun.

We let students share their own ghost stories. The students with the best stories were awarded their very own scary book in the spirit of All Hallow's Read.

I gave away copies of The Seer of Shadows by Avi, The Nightmarys by Dan Poblocki, The 39 Clues: Cahills Vs Vespers by Gordon Korman, Peak by Roland Smith, and a few others.

What do you do for Halloween?


  1. Just a quick note to let you know that I mentioned your blog in an article I had published in InFocus by Library Works / Librarians Yellow Pages. It is entitled "The Top 25 Library Blogs." It has also been repurposed / republished on the Rivistas Subscription Services site at

    Thanks for having such a great library oriented blog!
