It is the season for ghost stories. If you've been looking for a good ghost story,  the Great River Regional Library has plenty of books based on Minnesota haunted places, ghost stories and scares.  Here are a few I found today that are still available for you to check out.

GHOST STORIES OF MINNESOTA - Gina Teel

This book is available in multiple locations right now. Read about the spirit of a dead young mother still tending to her infant son in a house in Stillwater; learn about an angry ghost of a gangster caught on film trying to muscle in on a wedding in St. Paul and the handyman ghost haunting the Rochester Repository Theater.   This book had 4 stars on Amazon.

This book has a 5 star rating on Amazon. From cemetery's to trains and haunted lakes, this book describes first hand paranormal experiences from some of Minnesota's most haunted places.

GHOSTLY TALES OF MINNESOTA - Ruth D Hein

With 3 1/2 stars from Amazon, you can read about eerie happenings, unexplained events and mysterious situations. Moving lights, footprints that suddenly stop and disappear, and  a jealous spirit that pushes people down the stairs! There are 33 stories presented here. It's recommended you don't read this book when you are alone.
