Ghosts and goblins are moving in at South Hill Library.

Children are building a haunted house out of cardboard boxes inside the branch.

In the first two days of building last weekend, children had a roof up and had made dog and cat houses, said Susanne Miller, youth services librarian.

“I was kind of surprised that they were able to get the roof trusses up,” she said.

Now that the main structure is up, the focus is on decorating and amenities, with a cardboard Frankenstein standing guard.

Miller also is putting out supplies to make different paper plate creatures each day, including spiders, bats, cats and ghosts.

Friday and Saturday there will be treats and library staff members will be in costumes. “Usually we dress up as a book character,” Miller said.

Construction and house decorating will continue through Saturday.

“I’ve had a grandmother, a dad and a mom sitting inside there with their kids,” Miller siad. “It’s been kind of cute.”
