Library Events

  1. Pop Up! Library at Haunted Jefferson

    October 19, 2018, 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

    The Pop Up! Library will share frights at Haunted Jefferson. Stroll the local shops of Jefferson Street and experience some ghostly delights! Visit with the undead and shop some of the greatest stores in town! Find our ghost story at the Pop Up! Library too! Many shops will be hosting a ghost or two and many will be offering treats and deals, maybe even a prize! Make sure you pick up a ghost story from participating shops and create your own book of ghost tales of Burlington, Iowa. By the end of the night, you will have a keepsake that can be passed on for generations... - if you last that long! Save every story you receive from each shop and by the end of the evening, you will have your very own book full of local horror! Trick or Treat is for little kids- but tonight is for the older crowd, so leave the wee-little ones with the screamish and join us for "Un-Living Windows" this Halloween season on Haunted Jefferson!
