The Haunting of Hannon II: The Last Voyage of the Flying Dutchman

At the second annual iteration of this special event guaranteed to surprise and thrill, LMU Theatre Arts students haunt the stacks of Hannon Library with scenes from classic and contemporary horror novels as ghostly guides escort you through paranormal literary activity.  Tricks and treats will be served.


We are hosting two versions of the  program this year; a Friday night event for LMU students, and a Saturday afternoon program geared towards community members and their families (recommended for children ages 10 and older).


Tours will leave the library's department of Special Collections (located on the third floor of the library), approximately every ten minutes. Spots for the performances will be first-come, first-served, with sign-ups starting 30 minutes prior to the first performance on each day. We encourage you to arrive early to guarantee your spot!

Donate Blood and Get $10 Off Fines
The fall Center for Service & Action Blood Drive is one week away, and we're delighted to be a partner once again. 

Do you have any library fines? If so, get them zapped from your account (up to $10), AND be awesome at the same time. Give blood on October 7, 8, or 9, and bring proof (either a certificate that you tried to donate or your pretty gauze bandage) to the Circulation Desk to get the credit on your library account. Please bring this proof by the end of October. 

No library fines? Good on you! We hope you'll give blood, too.
