Students, faculty, staff, and children are invited to the English Club’s Spooktacular tonight.

Nease Library and the English Club are hosting a Halloween Spooktacular at the library from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. tonight.

Attendees are invited to dress in their Halloween costume and go trick-or-treating on the first and second floors of the library. Adults and students are encouraged to bring something to read, from Edgar Allen Poe to Stephen King.

“It’s an open mic night for people to read either original works or their favorite creepy stories,” English Club President senior Juanita Brown said. “We plan to have a costume contest and a relay race of sorts involving candy corn,” she said.

Brown is planning the event with senior Taylor Kelliher and Center for Academic Success assistant, Sherryl-Ann Shively.

“We hope to see a lot of people and have a lot of fun,” Brown said. “It’s a good alternative for the college students who actually think they are too old to go trick-or-treating and for those who don’t want to do the typical party thing.”

Spooktacular is from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. tonight at Nease Library.
