Mental health event series with a spooky twist
Scare the Stress Away 2024

Scare the Stress Away Crafting Series

Feeling overwhelmed, lonely, stressed? Come take a deep breath, let out a blood-curdling scream, and give your brain a break with spooky crafts at the JKM Library’s Scare the Stress Away series. Snacks will be provided. This is not a book club. Reading the books is not necessary.

During each session, attendees can create a preselected craft based on a spooky book, or you can play around with the provided crafting supplies to create a horror of your own devising. You can also spend the time simply staring into the void.

Supplies will be provided, but you are welcome to bring found objects and supplies of your own if you’d like to create something specific during the hour-long session.

The books used to create the prompts are part of the Summer Scares program, which is made possible by the Horror Writers Association (HWA), in partnership with United for Libraries, Book Riot, and Booklist. Check out the official Summer Scares Programming Guide for information on all the horror books pick for 2024!
