Rockford Public Library is hosting a series of spooky events in honor of Halloween including “Things that Go Bump in the Night: Wisconsin Ghost Hunters Report” on Saturday, October 20th from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. in the Auditorium of the Main Library at 215 N. Wyman St. This program features a presentation by Jennifer Lauer, an investigator from the Southern Wisconsin Paranormal Research Group, and is not for the faint of heart. Attendees will hear detailed reports of paranormal activity from the group’s investigations and will see the latest equipment used in their research.
“There has always been a fascination with the afterlife, and ultimately, people love to be spooked a little,” said Kathi Kresol of Rockford Public Library. “All of our Halloween events are extremely popular and a lot of fun.”
In addition to the “Things that Go Bump in the Night” program, Rockford Public Library is hosting spooky tales programs for children of all ages and its Haunted Rockford Bus Tour, which has already sold out.
