DARIEN, Conn. —The witching season is upon us and the Darien Library has got a little something for everyone looking to have a spooky time.
Join the library Monday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m., for "Haunted Connecticut," a look at the most haunted places and stories, found right in our own backyard.
From the White Lady who supposedly roams Union Cemetery in Easton, to the departed soul of Ernie, the keeper, who haunts the New London Ledge Lighthouse, to the spirits that possibly roam the former home of Mark Twain, hear stories about some of Connecticut's best-known ghosts and spirits.
The program is presented by Ray Bendici, content manager of Connecticut Magazine as well as one of the founders of "Damned Connecticut," a website devoted to everything weird and unusual in the state--from supposedly haunted destinations to weird legends to curious events.
Even little ones can get in on the fright fest. Join the children’s librarians for their annual outdoor scary story-fest, "Scary Stories to Chill Your Bones."
The librarians invite all children ages 8 and up to join them in Darien’s Tilley Pond Park for an evening of spooky tales and jump stories on Friday, Oct. 30, at 6 p.m. Tricks and treats await those who enjoy silly, spooky and sometimes scary stories.
The Darien Library is at 1441 Post Road. Tilley Pond Park covers over 8 acres of property in the center of Darien on the corner of Lakeside and West Avenues.
