Do sasquatch, Melon Heads, sea monsters, and other cryptids lurk near where we live? Explore the urban legends of Ohio during a special program at our Lake Branch.

Ohio is stuffed with frightening folktales and chilling legends. Have you heard of Cry Baby Bridge? Helltown? The Melon Heads that were rumored to live in Kirtland?

Our own Ms. Mollie will introduces you to the stories behind the legends of Mothman, the Monster of Minerva, the Lake Erie Monster, and more. She’ll also tell you about the state’s many Bigfoot sighting and the only known Witch Trial to occur in Ohio.

Her talk is free to attend and open to all. It will be 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 27, at our Lake Branch. Space is limited, so registration is required. Sign up on our website or by calling us at (440) 257-2512.

If you can’t get enough of local lore, our YouTube channel has authors sharing some of their favorite stories that they’ve researched:
