Tyler Library Offers Paranormal Reading Program
The Tyler Public Library announces its newest adult program: the Paranormal Adult Summer Reading Program (ASRP). The goal of the program is for participants to read eight different books from June 5 to July 29. Readers can record their title and author on their online reading log at www.tyler.readsquared.com. Registration is free.
For every book reported on a participant’s online reading log, one ticket for the drawing of a $100 gift card to Home Depot is earned. The drawing is held after July 29 to celebrate this fun program.
In addition, the library is hosting three “spooky” paranormal events.
“We are so excited about our Paranormal events,” said Connie Greer, access librarian. “We want people to celebrate literacy with us and attend some fun events that go hand in hand with the themes of their spooky summer reads."
Kicking off the paranormal activities at the library on Wednesday, June 7 at 6 p.m. is an after-hours ghost tour. Professional physic and ghost hunter Mike McCaskill is present to lead those attending on an adventure. McCaskill is a psychic medium and a founding member of A.R.T (Afterlife Research Team) and has been involved in the paranormal for more than 15 years.
“Due to the scary nature of this event, we do ask that all those in attendance be at least 18 years old,” Greer said.
On June 14 at 5 p.m., ASRP participants meet wildlife expert and cryptozoologist Jeff Stewart, also known as The Cryptohulk. He is sharing information on finding Bigfoot and other outdoor creatures. This is a fun event for those Bigfoot searchers or for those who enjoy stories about things that go bump in the night.
To wrap up the Paranormal Summer, on June 21st at 5 p.m., the library welcomes UFO expert Nick Redfern and psychic Buffy Clary. British best-selling author and Ufologist Nick Redfern visits with fans while selling and signing his books. While people wait, clairvoyant Buffy Clary looks into participant’s future.
Proceeds from book sales at these events benefit the Friends of the Tyler Library.
