Haunted Stacks, Sacramento’s positively creepiest and most educational haunted library tour, is returning for a third year on Friday, October 26! The basics are the same as previous years: We will be screening a classic scary flick in the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria from 7-9 p.m. and taking participants on “haunted” tours of the Sacramento Room in the old Carnegie library while the film is playing. While the basics are the same, visitors can expect a whole new show this year. In an effort to keep the tour surprising and scary even for return guests, we will take a different route through the Sacramento Room, and actors will be tackling new roles. Sacramento Room decorations and undead characters will transport participants back to 1900. Among the “ghosts” haunting the Sacramento Room will be Miss Alice Curtis, who died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest, and Adelbert B. C. Devendorf, a Civil War veteran who was a victim of accidental poisoning by strychnine, taken legitimately for chills.
Haunted Stacks is free and recommended for ages 10 and up. No advance registration is required; however, tour space is limited, so participants are encouraged to arrive by 7 p.m. to sign up.
