In Halloweens past our friends at the library let our famed rat de bibliothèque mascot join in on the spooky holiday fun and created a variety of costumes for him! Below are some of our favorite rat costumes and their accompanying stories.

Happy Halloween to all our Francophile friends!



Ingrid Marquardt

Librarian

Ingrid began her passion for French through the immersion program in Milton, MA, and has followed it around France and the world. She took a break from this first love to pursue a B.A. in English with a minor in Irish Studies at Boston College and a Masters of Library and Information Sciences at Simmons College. She is thrilled to meld her excitement for libraries and French language and culture in her position at the Center!
