Ghost Walk 2009 Report

In the year of 2009 we had our annual Ghost Walk on Friday, October 30th.

Earlier In the day:

We actually began having weird occurrences early in the day. Micki loaned me her pin-drive so that I could transfer the e.v.p.’s (electronic voice phenomenon) on it to my computer. She was standing here talking to me about the coming evening as I transferred the files. I told her I would bring her the pin-drive when I was finished.  About five minutes later I grabbed it and headed for the back room to give it to her. When I got back there I found it was no longer in my hand. I looked around the floor and checked my pockets. It wasn’t there. I decided I must have actually left it at my desk after all. We set up for the program and then I went to go look on my desk. It wasn’t there. I was really concerned by this time and spent about a half-hour searching and asking my colleagues if they had seen it. No one had. I finally gave up and went home, continuing to worry about it all afternoon. When I got back to the library the first thing I said to Micki was, “I think I lost your pin-drive.” She looked at me oddly and I said, “Do you have it?” She said, “Yes, it was on my desk in my little zipper bag with the rest of them.”  I did not put it in there. Neither did anyone else that worked here that day and her desk is in the back area where only employees may go.

Carla was in her office working with some Celtic music playing. She clearly heard a woman’s voice come across the speakers, over the top of the music, “Hello”, it said.  She looked around….there was no one there. She checked her phone, just to check and see if maybe somehow it was the phone.  It wasn’t. Then, the voice came across again, “Hello?” Carla told me she went out to the circulation desk and asked if anyone had been speaking to her. Everyone looked at each other, puzzled and said they had not.  As she entered her office again, she heard, “Hello!” and again, “Hello!” It was already time for her to go home, so she turned off the music and went home.

The Ghost Walk:

We all continuously felt cold drafts as soon as we entered the library.  Thankfully the equipment worked great, as we presented the power point presentation featuring a brief history of the sight of the building along with information on the building of the library complete with photographs of some of the remains found. We had great feedback and discussions. We showed them the library web page, in particular The Ghost Blog, High Spirits.  We determined to split into three groups.  Micki loaned us her k2-meter and prepared to review the existing e.v.p.’s on the blog, and I prepared to lead the first tour.

Tour One:

We gathered in the gallery. I begin my tours by going into the women’s bathroom, with the lights out, a few at a time. Once inside, I share with them the various incidences reported or experienced in that area. We decided to go ahead and leave the lights out and a few people decided to record with their cell phones. It took us a few min to get situated. There where cold ‘drafts’ passing through, past all of us. We all felt like there was a presence. I told them about patron reports of ghosts, of sounds and of my own ghostly experiences. Here is what I told them:

First of all it was quite literally years before I personally had a paranormal experience in the bathroom.  When I did it was brief and intense. For the first time I had an unpleasant vibe in connection with the paranormal activity at the library. I was leaving the last stall in the women’s restroom and heading for the last sink when I heard this huge commotion coming from the door to the bathroom and heading towards me…it sounded, oddly,  like a man in heavy boots aggressively running to me half yelling and mumbling and speaking intelligibly in a jumble of disturbing sounds. It happened so fast I didn’t even get to finish my exclamation of, “What’s wrong?!” before it or ‘he’ was literally directly behind me…I could FEEL him towering over me and there was this menace emanating from the entity and surrounding me. I am not easily spooked; however it took great self control not to run out of there.

I also told them about how many librarians and patrons over the years have heard giggling coming from the ladies restroom.

The week of the program one librarian heard the toilet paper rolling in the stall next to her…toilet paper piling on the floor and no one else in the bathroom…she checked the stall and the toilet paper was still rolling…by itself.
