Our TAB is also doing a Haunted House at our library this year - first time
ever! - and I am lucky enough to have a friend who has a lot of experience
with setting up haunted houses and one thing I learned - always get your
fire marshall's approval on your set-up! If not, they can come in the night
of the program and shut you down.



Good luck!

Subject: {TAGAD-L} Library Haunted House

Hello everybody,



My TAB would like to hold a Haunted House this year in our library branch
after hours. I told them the whole event had to be based on literary
characters both contemporary and classic. They want it to be an after hours
event for teens only. And spooky.



My supervisor has some concerns however because this hasn't been done in our
system before. She is worried about what type of costumes might be worn, if
the haunted house would be too gory or objectionable and if tastes might be
offended.



Has anyone done a YA Haunted House at their library? If so, what time of
day was it (during or after hours)? Put on by just staff or teens as well?
Was it spooky? Costumes? Decorations? How did you advertise it? What was
your attendance? What were your costs?



I found a few blog entries from different libraries that had done Halloween
things but those were on their public blogs so it was mostly pictures and
how much fun everyone had. Proof that people have done successful Halloween
things in the library but I'm looking for the behind the scenes.



Any help would be appreciated.
