Scary books from the Monte Vista library


WANT TO scare yourself? Come in to the library and check out our selection of blood-chilling scary stories. Just don't read them at night... 
Zombies? Try ROT AND RUIN or WARM BODIES. Vampires? NOS4A2 by Joe Hill, Stephen King's son! Or maybe some classic literature like PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND VAMPIRES! There are lots of books to freak you out. Come on by and get into the scary mood of the season!

NOW with groovy cafe lighting! We've made more seating available in the quiet area of the library. Please feel free to check it out in the back nonfiction room. Remember, this is the ONLY place in the library where you cannot talk. This is out of respect for those who need quiet to study or read.
