Haunted Library is Coming!


Longview Public Library will be closed to normal operations on Friday, October 20th and Saturday, October 21st, and will only be open for the Haunted Library from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM each night.

Due to the cost of materials and the size to which Haunted Library has grown, the Friends of the Longview Public Library are charging a small entry fee this year: $2.00 for adults, and $1.00 for children 12 and under. All of the proceeds benefit the Friends of the Longview Public Library and will be used to cover future children’s programs and to purchase new Library books. Tickets are on sale now and may be purchased at the Library with cash or cards.

Tickets must be presented for entry to the event. Those who purchase a ticket prior to the event will receive line priority and may enter the Haunted Library via a separate line before those who did not purchase a ticket ahead of time. Due to large crowds, patrons must arrive by 7:00 PM on their chosen night to guarantee entry into the Haunted Library. There will be no refunds issued for tickets under any circumstances, as this is a fundraiser for the Friends of the Longview Public Library.

The Haunted Library is a full-fledged haunted house, complete with fake blood, various frights, and high-impact scares; therefore, it is recommended for patrons ages 10+. We strongly advise parents to use caution and discernment when deciding whether or not to bring children to the Haunted Library.

Longview Public Library is also accepting volunteers for the Haunted Library. All ages are welcome to volunteer, as long as they are able to handle the scary content of the event. Volunteers must be signed up prior to the event in order to participate and must attend a Haunted Library Volunteer Orientation on September 19th, 28th, or 30th.
