Speaker Bio: For nearly two decades Chad Lewis has traveled the back roads of the world in search of the strange and unusual. From tracking vampires in Transylvania and searching for the elusive monster of Loch Ness to trailing the dangerous Tata Duende through remote villages of Belize and searching for ghosts in Ireland’s haunted castles, Chad has scoured the earth in search of the paranormal.
Chad has been featured on the Discovery Channel’s A Haunting, William Shatner’s Weird or What, ABC’s Scariest Places on Earth, along with being a frequent contributor on Ripley’s Believe it or Not Radio. With a Masters Degree in Psychology, Chad has authored over 15 books on the supernatural, and extensively lectures on his fascinating findings. The more bizarre the legend, the more likely it is that you will find Chad there.

‘Booking’ your teddy bear is required so we have enough materials for all of our stuffed friends. Registration forms are available at the circulation desk. Please make sure that children will be able to leave the stuffed animal for the night! Teddy bears (or other stuffed animals) can be picked up on Thursday after 10:30 a.m. when the library will re-open. Only one stuffed friend per child, please.
Hopefully they will behave for the night here at the library!
