"Our library is well stocked with priceless first editions - only ghost stories, of course - and marble busts of the greatest ghost writers the literary world has ever known."

The Library is a room in the Haunted Mansion that is found only in the Walt Disney World and Tokyo Disneyland versions of the attraction.

The Attraction[]

After leaving the Portrait Corridor, guests' doom buggies enter this chamber of floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, crammed with dusty tomes. Invisible spirits pull books from the shelves, slide a rolling ladder back and forth, rock a chair, and turn pages of a book on a side-table. Marble busts watch from alcoves among the shelves, seeming to turn and stare at guests as they pass through the library into the Music Room.

Other Appearances[]

The Haunted Mansion Film[]

The library of Gracey Manor is large and grand, decorated with taxidermy animals and artifacts from exotic locations. It incorporates elements from the Music Room and Conservatory of the attraction in its design as well.

This was the room that, in the past, Elizabeth Henshaw died in. In the present day, Jim Evers finds a secret passage from this room when he accidentally pushes a switch disguised marble bust. Later, he crashes his car through the conservatory window here after getting trapped outside the mansion.

Haunted Mansion Holiday Nightmare[]

Zero HMHN Library

Zero can be seen putting garland onto a tree made of floating books. The book tree and the library can also be found at Disneyland's Haunted Mansion during Haunted Mansion Holiday. It can be seen in a small alcove in the Grand Hall.

Disney Kingdoms Haunted Mansion[]

The Hatbox Ghost brings Danny to the mansion's library after rescuing him from the Captain, leaving him to fend for himself. When the Captain appears on a wrought-iron balcony with Madame Leota, he smashes her crystal ball and forces Danny to side with him in finding the mansion's hidden treasure, which he believes is in the attic.

Tales from the Haunted Mansion[]

Amicus Arcane, the mansion's librarian and supposed author of the collection, haunts the library and keeps it in order, with the stories of all the Mansion's inhabitants being found among its shelves. In the first volume, he tells his gruesome tales to the Fearsome Foursome here. As seen in subsequent volumes, the Library also includes a collection of film reels for the Mansion's movie theater, as Arcane considers himself a collector of stories and doesn't discriminate against alternate mediums. Arcane also employed two assistant librarians, Mistress Granger and Mistress Black, and upon his retirement, ends up selecting Willa Gaines of the Fearsome Foursome as his successor.
