In October 2016, libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural institutions around the world shared spooky, creepy, and otherwise frightening and/or Halloween-related books and images from their collections on social media using the hashtag #PageFrights.

Some of last year’s participating institutions will be continuing the Halloween fun informally in 2017. Follow #PageFrights on social media to join the conversation.

Page Frights was inspired by the 2015 #creepyarchives campaign launched by the Medical Historical Library at Yale University. #PageFrights was spearheaded by the Biodiversity Heritage Library, The New York Academy of Medicine, the Medical Historical Library at Yale University, and Smithsonian Libraries.
