This was taken on October 24th in the Staff Lounge. There should not be anything triggering the EMF detector but watch for yourself.

This is Paula Shablo using the device trying to get an outline of “whatever” is visiting with us.

2020 Ghost Walk Video Clip/Orbs

November 13, 2020 on 2:33 pm | In Article | No Comments

Submitted by Ghost Walk Crew member Cindy Kniep

This is a short video clip of an orb captured in the Ladies Room at the library. Watch carefully for the orb to move left to right.

I am not usually a big supporter of orbs, but this seems believable to me.

I had to play it several times before I really saw it.

 

This one is easier to see.

Thank you Cindy Kniep.

Aunt Nancy Phillips

November 13, 2020 on 1:22 pm | In Article | No Comments
I wanted to share a story with you. During the last Ghost Walk, on October 24th, 2020, we were upstairs in the Staff Lounge.
Image may contain: 1 person
I was watching as patrons gathered around the table. We asked everyone to set their devices (KII’s, EMF detectors, etc.) on the table. We started asking questions. At one point, the KII on the corner of the table lit up. We started asking if different spirits were with us. At some point, it occurred to me to ask if Nancy was with us. I don’t know where that came from. The KII started lighting up. I started telling the story of a lady that was in Green River back around the turn of the century, that she was a dress maker and mid-wife. The KII’s started lighting up more. I asked again “Are you Aunt Nancy?” The devices really lit up. It did seem that she was talking to us.
I saw that the Sweetwater County Historical Museum had shared an article that mentioned her in regards to women and the vote, since it is voting day. Also, more information was shared by Art King on their feed.
Thank you for the information.
Here is the info they shared:
This is Nancy Phillips (aka Aunt Nancy), she was an ex-slave, seamstress, and midwife in Green River in 1868. She was possibly a servant of S.I Field, and owned a small property in what is now downtown Green River, Wyoming.
Rock Springs Miner no. 8 February 25, 1904 Mrs. Nancy Phillips, more generally known as “Aunty Phillips”, died at her home in Green River last Sunday morning, after a brief illness with pneumonia. Mrs. Phillips was born in Baltimore, Md., in 1834, and came to Wyoming shortly after the civil war. She first lived at South Pass, then moved to Bryan and later moved to Green River, where she has since resided. The funeral services were held on Monday afternoon and were conducted by the Rev. A.C. Warner.
When I worked for the local library some years ago, I ran across her obituary. It had also stated that she came to Green River with her husband and son. She worked out of shop on Railroad Avenue in town, sewing beautiful dresses.
I very much hope it was Aunt Nancy that was talking to us. I have always admired her spunk.
After posting this information on the Ghost Walk Crew’s Facebook page, several Ghost Walk attendees commented.
Mary Mawk to our Ghost Walk Crew member Mary Conley- “This is the woman I said I had never seen before!
She was new to me, I’ve not seen her before. She hung back and observed, following but not too closely. Keeping a watch over the goings-on, if you will. She did not speak to me but acknowledged that I knew she was there. At the end, I said to her “Have a good evening” and she responded in kind.
, on the night of the 17th, when John and I went, I told him and Mary there was a spirit I had never seen before. And I described her to both Mary and John. This is the woman I saw. If she was there the following week, she may be around more often.
Kayla McDonald posted the following:
 I had her name many times at the Walk the night of the 17th.
Sami Doak and I were talking to someone in the kids section that night

Thank you.

2019 Ghost Walks Part II Private Ghost Walk

October 31, 2019 on 10:38 am | In Article | No Comments

Private Ghost Walk 10/11/2019
Evidence Reveal
After reviewing the digital recorder files, this is what I have to report.
*Got the name of Charlotte in the Ladies Room on an Ovilus.
*Youth Services back area-Battery drain on Tiffany’s Spirit Box
*Young Adult area-KII & EMF hits while I was telling the story about the seven-year-old girl. Seemed as though she might be with us. One Ovilus says “Notice me”.
***Staff Lounge-On the Ovilus someone got Evelyn. Devices were lighting

 

up. Someone also got “Captain”, “Natalie”, “Port”, “Austin”, “Marilyn”, and “Dawn”. Not much activity in the restroom area, which is odd. We usually do. Nothing by the leather chair just in the door, which again, we usually do. More Ovilus catches were “Yep”, “Too private”, and “Scientist”. Later someone got “Help”, “Death”, “Yard” and” Samuel”.
While I was telling the “little ghost girl” story, a man asked if she had blonde hair and ringlets and a cream-colored dress. To of us heard singing in the hallway.
We received the name “Gretchyn”. A man reported seeing “Elizabeth” who we think might be Elizabeth Moriarty, the first librarian in Green River. She was not at the current building, but we think she keeps an eye on the staff. There are several reports in the Ghost Log of people seeing her.
A man sneezed. All the devices lit up and on an Ovilus the word “sneeze” came up.
Again on the Ovilus someone got “Soldier” and “Disease”.

We again heard humming or singing in the hallway.
I took several recordings. Please take a listen and see what you find. Some are long but I think I hear a few EVPs.

Please message me back if you catch anything. Thank you.

 

 

 

 

 

Take a listen and see what you hear and let me know.

I have three more but they are very long. As soon as I can figure out how to edit them down, I will post them as well.

2019 Ghost Walks Part I

October 29, 2019 on 11:26 am | In Article | No Comments

 

It has been Ghost Walk time again. So many of you bought tickets. We were amazed. Thank you for that.

With each ticket you purchase, you support the Sweetwater County Library System Foundation.

The volunteer group the Ghost Walk Crew are the people that now do the Ghost Walks. We try very hard to get as many people in for a tour as possible.

We are in the process of reviewing our evidence from the last Ghost Walks. This will take a little time so please be patient.  So for now, I am posting some of the photos taken on the latest Walks.

Here is a group that asked for their photo to be taken.

This was at the end of the tour and they all seem pretty happy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Taken in the Gallery area. We seemed to be getting quite a lot of activity on KIIs & EMF detectors.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Taken in the Young Adult area. We did have some KII activity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once again, The Gallery shows activity.  The Raggedy Ann doll seems to attract, what we think, are the small children.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While in the Staff Lounge, one man seemed to be in contact with a spirit laying on the floor. In a previous Walk, we thought that a dog might be hanging out with us. Maybe it was back.

Spirits in the Stacks, Tales from the Sweetwater County’s haunted library

October 15, 2019 on 2:22 pm | In Article | No Comments

I am very proud to announce the book  Spirits in the Stacks, Tales from the Sweetwater County’s haunted library is now available on Amazon.com both in book and ebook form.

Books will soon be available at the three main Sweetwater County Library System libraries.

In Green River-The Sweetwater County Library

In Rock Springs-Rock Springs Library & White Mountain Library

I wrote the book during my time working at the Sweetwater County Library. I started substituting in September 1992. The first week I began work, things started happening to me. I heard a voice in my right ear saying “M.i.c.k.i.  It happened three times that day. After the third, my co-worker Marilyn Doctor saw the look on my face and asked what was wrong. I told her what had happened. She replied “That’s been happening to me all week long”. 

As you see, for me, the spirits seemed to always become part of my working at the library.  This is not to say that things happened every day, they didn’t. But one thing or another would happen often enough. By January, I had been hired on as regular part-time circulation clerk. The other staff told many stories and I wanted to know more. I approached Pat LeFaivre, the Head Librarian. I asked if I could read the other stories and where were they written down. She said they had never kept a journal of any kind. So, this is when I asked if I could start one.

Hence, the now well-known Ghost Log.  It has grown through the years and we have a wide variety of stories. Stories of hearing voices of men, women and children, seeing moving shadows, smelling cigar smoke & old timey perfume, being touched, seeing a hand print appear on the monition screen and then disappear.  The list goes on and on.

Through the years, many of the library patrons and public have asked for us to write a book. In November 2011, I approached Carla Hardy, the Head Librarian for permission to start a book. She said I would need to talk to the Director Scott Kinney. His reply was “Well, we are going to have to live with them.  We might as well embrace it. Go ahead”. 

If has been a long process, with “Book Committee” people coming and going. Changes have been made many times and sometimes, back again. I did several personal interviews.  The people were very kind in doing them. John Legerski, was very special. At the time of the interview, he was about eighty years old.  Sadly, he died a couple years after and never got to see his story in print. But his sons and family will.

I have so much I want to say but I will try to keep it short. 

Why did I write the book? First of all, because the public asked for it. Second, because myself and all the Ghost Walk people old and new, feel it needs to be told. The goal is never to make someone believe. The goal is to report what evidence we find and share it. Everyone must decide for themselves if they believe or not.

I hope you find the book interesting and informative. There have been countless hours put into the gathering of stories people wanted to share. It is truly our pleasure to finally be able to bring this project to fruition.

*By setting up the Sweetwater County Library System Foundation as your preferred charity on Amazon Smile, each book sold will also earn the Foundation a small profit.  

Thank you.
