Fortunately, you’ll never experience that particular terror, because your Lincolnwood library card gives you access to hundreds of Halloween songs, movies, and ebooks on hoopla.

Not-so-spooky holiday music for kids includes “Halloween Songs and Sounds” from Disney and “Harry Potter’s Halloween,” while the Halloween Horrors music collection features albums like “Halloween Film Theme Classics” and “Terror Disturbia.”

Movie buffs: help your little trick-or-treaters settle down with “Click, Clack, Boo!” and “The Dog Who Saved Halloween,” then keep yourself up all night with truly frightening flicks from hoopla’s horror collection.

Choose books like J is for Jack-O’-Lantern and Five Trick-or-Treaters from the Halloween ebook shelf while the kids are awake. After they’re tucked in, read every issue of The Walking Dead from Image Comics—or just sample the first, Days Gone Bye, to see if you like it as much as the TV show.

Speaking of TV shows, hoopla has some classic series like “The Addams Family” and “Dark Shadows,” as well as special holiday episodes like “Eloise’s Rawther Unusual Halloween.”

If you prefer to conjure up your own mental images while listening to scary stories, a five-hour audiobook collection of Classic Horror Stories to Chill Your Bones should keep you busy. For car rides with the kids, try the audiobooks A Very Brave Witch or It’s Halloween, You ’Fraidy Mouse! from the Geronimo Stilton series.

Use hoopla’s search function to find any of these individual titles, or follow the links above to Halloween collections. If you’re new to hoopla, don’t be scared…it’s easy to get started! Visit our hoopla help page or contact us to set up a one-on-one help session.
