‘Miss Jane’ spins spooky stories

Canton Branch Library will transform into a spooky storytelling arena from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Oct. 11 in the meeting room. Jane Shipman, known as “Miss Jane” for many years when she worked as a children’s librarian in Waynesville, will tell Halloween stories appropriate for both children and adults. Some stories may be a bit frightening; some may be funny, but all are sure to enchant. Shipman tailors her performances based on the audience, choosing from a large repertoire of both original stories and tales based on books.

The event is free and open to the public. Children are encouraged to try out their Halloween costumes. Treats, generously provided by the Friends of the Library, will be served.
