Your Community: Spooky fall recommendations from Johnson County Library

Cuddle up underneath a blanket and get ready to enjoy some fall-themed books from the Johnson County Library.

If the return of cool weather, falling leaves, and pumpkin-spice-everything has you longing to curl up with a blanket and a good book (or movie), Johnson County Library has you covered with a variety of suggestion lists to bring just the right amount of spooky to your October.

For the latest in adult fiction, check out Don’t Cover Your Eyes! Horror (and Horror-ish) Novels for 2021. This list includes books suggested at our recent Book Party, a regular live event where you can hear about a themed selection of books from one of our Librarians.
