Spirits in the Stacks!

Spirits in the Stacks posterIs Edna real?  Or just the figment of an overactive imagination?  Are you one of the people who have felt an otherwordly “presence” in Kennebunk Free Library? Join us to find out what the experts find!

Tickets are now on sale for Spirits in the Stacks! This unique fundraising event will be held at the Kennebunk Free Library on Saturday, November 17, starting at 7:30 PM.

The evening will feature delicious hors d’oeuvres by Destination Catering, a cash bar, and a hauntingly decorated Library!

Included with the ticket purchase are opportunities to visit with Coffin-Aiello Paranormal Society’s owners and learn about the results of their recent investigation of paranormal activity in the Library. It’s long been rumored that the Library is home to a friendly spirit; come and find out if this spirit was detected! Additionally, guests may attend one of the two group readings by local medium, Melissa Boyd of Deep Blue Truth, have their Tarot Cards read by Kelley Taylore Ryan, and meet with pet telepath, Diane Emery, to reach out to their pets – both alive or passed (attendees need to bring a photo of their pet).

A silent auction of spirit-related items will be conducted. Four 10-minute readings for that night will be auctioned as well as two, off-site one hour readings and one ten-person gallery reading, all to be held at a later date. A session with Diane Emery will also be auctioned.

Tickets are available at the Library for $35 per person. For more information about the event and auction items, please call the library at 985-2173 or visit
