Scary stories and tours in Berne: Be there if you dare

To the Editor:

Tell me a story. Tell me a scary story. How about a scary story to tell in the dark?

That’s just what the Berne Public Library and the Berne Historical Society have in mind for Monday, Oct. 24, at 7 p.m. This lively program is geared for adults as well as children in the age-10-and-up category.

Experienced storytellers Siri Allison and Nancy Payne have some tales to share that may have skin-bristling goosebump effects. Or you could sense an invisible hand grazing your shoulder ever so mischievously. Watch out! Casper could be sidling up to pull you into a ghostly caper.

The program is made possible by the Story Circle of the Capital District through funds raised by its annual storytelling concert for adults, Tellabration.

With Halloween within throwing distance we’ll get you in a ghost and goblin kind of mood. First with stories at the library on the 24th. Then, on Sunday, Oct. 30, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., we’ll have Spooky Museum Tours at the Berne Museum located at the Berne Town Hall.

Refreshments are free, the ghostly tales are free, and a small workshop to enliven your own storytelling endeavors is free. Be there if you dare.
