Good news for those who were unable to attend one of our library's most popular programs. The Ghost Hunters will be returning to Scranton in October--just in time for Halloween.

Due to overwhelming popular demand, the library will again be hosting NYPAPS - New York Pennsylvania Paranormal Society - paranormal investigators or Ghost Hunters. They will be returning to Albright Memorial Library on Thursday, October 23rd at 6:30 PM.

The Society will start off with an informative talk, show a presentation of their work and answer questions the audience will have.

They will also present the results of their findings during their investigation of the library in August.

This program is not suitable for children.

To accomodate more people who want to attend this program (one of our most popular programs), Ghost Hunters will be presented in the Periodicals Room of the Reference Department, which is not handicapped accessible.

Reservations can be made at 348-3000 ext. 3043.
