SUISUN CITY - The Suisun City Library will be transformed into a 'Haunted Toy Store' Thursday with six different scary rooms staffed by local teen volunteers as part of various family activities scheduled for an early Halloween celebration.

The rooms will include a doll house, a mad scientist lab, a fortune teller room, a clown room, a fairy tale room and a G.I. Joe Army room, said event organizer Mikayla Forkes, 16.

'We built walls within the meeting room that are separated by archways,' said Forkes, a senior at Armijo High School.

The event is aimed at children in middle school or younger, Forkes said, adding that there is a system in place to tone down the fear factor for younger children.

'For kids that are young, we encourage parents to come through with the kids,' Forkes said. 'We'll ask parents. 'Are they scared easily?' so everyone is aware. We can change it per kid so we're not scaring everyone who's too frightened to come through.'
