Fall River Library Went Totally Nuts for Stephen King’s Birthday in the MOST Epic Way
Who knew libraries could be so insanely cool?
Just about an hour outside of Boston, Massachusetts is Fall River. They have a library—nothing spectacular about that - except how they celebrated Stephen King's birthday.

Yup. Annie Wilkes was the winner.
