Greensburg Hempfield Area Library beckons the brave to its haunted cellar

Greensburg Hempfield Area Library welcomes those who dare enter its haunted cellar.

Greensburg Hempfield Area Library staff members know kids like to be scared at Halloween, just like many of their older siblings and parents.

So they put together an annual “Haunted Cellar” on the lower level of the library, at 237 S. Pennsylvania Ave., and invite them to enter — if they dare.

“It’s like a haunted house, a walk-through. It’s meant to be scary,” says children’s librarian Jessica Kiefer. The cellar will be “haunted” from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 28-29. Visitors can enter through the Third Street door.

“There is no registration necessary. People can show up at any time during that time frame. It’s a lot of fun. It’s kind of nice if you’ve never done a haunted house before,” Kiefer says.

The program is recommended for those age 8 and up, and is free to the public. Strobe lights may be used, visitors are warned.

“Grown-ups are welcome, too,” she says.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
