Salutations you wondrous patrons!

Well we made it to October and Halloween is just around the corner. Ready for a spooky movie to get you in the holiday spirit? Well your beautiful Kirkwood Public Library has a large selection of frightening and frighteningly funny films ready to do just that.

Long ago, fellow coworkers and I would attempt to watch a spooky movie daily (throughout the month of October) and discuss on the following day. It has become somewhat of an October tradition for me. This task can be a challenge but for 2017 I have already knocked out Halloween, Rock & Roll Nightmare, and Alien… but there are so much more to go. Thankfully, I have the catalogue here at our library to help in my quest.

Here are a few titles that are on my 2017 list that you can get right here at your Kirkwood Public Library…


The Thing



Get Out

Friday the 13th

…And so much more. Drop on by the Kirkwood Public Library and browse our Halloween Hot Copy section today. While here, let me know your favorite terror tale or comment below. I would love to hear from you.

I’m Ryan. I’ll be in the library. Always enjoy you scary movie.
