The only tricks here are the one’s up Mortola Library’s (book) sleeves as they prepare to host haunted readings and vampires as part of their Halloween celebration on October 29.

Mortola Library is awesome. We’re not saying that because of the abundance of teaching and learning resources and research and reference services, though that makes them awesome, too. And it’s not just that they bring puppies to the Library to help students de-stress around finals, but who can argue the awesome factor there. We’re talking about how into Halloween Mortola Library is getting this year—we’re talking haunted readings and vampires.
