Dark Side of Marlboro
Historical Walking Tour
After taking a brief hiatus last year due to the pandemic, we were excited to once again offer our Dark Side of Marlboro Walking Tour! Offered every year before Halloween, library staff take participants on a guided walking tour through the town and reveal long-forgotten tales unearthed in the Library's local history collection. Keep an eye out for next year's tour! Tickets go on sale in September and all proceeds go towards future library programming.
