What is mysterious, thrilling and smells of pumpkin-spice? The UMN Libraries! Well…it might be more of an “old book” scent…but we have all sorts of Halloween and fun events in October.
Find a spooky read – horror, sci-fi, mystery, oh my!
Our Halloween fun-reading pop-up library will be popping up where you least expect it to…just like a jump scare in a scary movie. Take a study break in October and curl up with a thrilling read. Need a suggestion? Try the UMN Libraries book matchmakers.
