This month’s display was created by Wheelock student and Salem Witch Trial enthusiast, Bridget Hoarty! The Salem Witch Trials began in 1692 in Salem Village, Massachusetts. Within the 15 month time period during which the hysteria ensued, 185 people (and two dogs) were accused of witchcraft. Stop by the Library to see the display which includes fiction and non-fiction books written about the Salem Witch Trials and don’t forget that all the books in the Library display cases are available for check out!
Want to learn more? Plan a visit to Salem during the month of October when Salem Haunted Happenings is in full swing! Events vary from the educational (visit the Salem Witch Museum or The House of Seven Gables) to the frightening (haunted houses and spooky shows galore) or to the more family friendly (costume parades and fireworks.)
