What’s happening at Carnegie Library?

By Timothy Penwell II - Carnegie Library Circulation Manager

Coming up on Saturday, Oct. 15 at 12 p.m., Marc DeWerth, president of the Ohio Bigfoot Organization, will share “Bigfoot” field experience and interviews from eyewitnesses at the Carnegie Library. If you have had a personal encounter, please come and share it with him! Skeptical? Listen to the evidence Marc has compiled in his 26 years of research and then decide! This event will take place in the library meeting room.

Teens: Have you heard about our “Teen Fright Film Fest?” Calling all actors, actresses, script writers, directors, costume designers, and makeup artists! Gather your crew and create your own scary movie! Get creative: Use your phone, a friends camera, a webcam, anything! Your film will premiere at the Carnegie Library’s first ever “Teen Fright Film Fest.”

Gather your own cast and crew, or join a group to create your own original scary movie. The top three winners will have their films featured on Channel 3, and posted on their YouTube Channel! Get those ideas together, and get filming! This event is free and open to all students in grades 6-12. Information packets are available at the library. So, pick up a packet and register for this event today! Film viewing will take place at the library on Saturday, Oct. 29 at 11 a.m.
