Paranormal On the Shelves Part I

June 15, 2013 on 2:35 pm | In Article | 3 Comments


The Sweetwater County Library is known for the reports of paranormal activity.  We provide information about the library in the official Ghost Log as well as on the blog you are now reading.  The staff schedules several Ghost Walks throughout the year as well as the occasional special event.  Our goal is to provide information, activities, and materials to help us and the public learn as much as possible about the paranormal.

The library has for you several documentaries/series available on the shelves to help you learn more about the subject.


Unexplained noises, objects flying across the room, and frightening messages scrawled on walls.  Are these mysterious occurrences the work of spirits from the other world, or are they merely horrifying tricks of the mind?

In this chilling program from THE HISTORY CHANNEL, meet several families who claim their homes have been the site of some very mysterious and terrifying activity.  Find out how these people have dealt with these disturbances-and learn of one case in which a family has spent years unsuccessfully trying to get away from the spirits they say haunt their everyday lives.

Interviews with psychologists, parapsychologists, and so-called “ghostbusters” offer up varying explanations for the strange happenings, while video footage of séances and photographs of supposed energy and even ghost-like countenances highlight the lengths people have gone to in order to solve the puzzle of these HAUNTINGS.

Poltergeist (A & E)

The name invokes images of vengeful spirits and brings to mind some of the some of the most memorable horror movies ever.  But what is a poltergeist-is it a demon, a ghost, or perhaps the manifestation of the psychic energy of a living person?

POLTERGEIST investigates four distinct cases of paranormal incidents in which there is undeniable, physical evidence that something happened: the actual world was affected.  But by what?  Dramatic reenactments and chilling interviews with victims illuminate the terrifying encounters, exposing minute details.  Listen as psychics and scientists grapple with the strange phenomena and journey to the sites where poltergeists are said to have appeared, from a Kentucky honky-tonk to ancient British universities.

A & E takes you beneath the surface of the unknown to present the mystery, the terror, and the enchantment of poltergeists.

Psychic Kids : Children of the Paranormal ( A & E)

They say things like, “I can communicate with the dead, “They live in terror, not only of the spirits they see, hear, and sense, but of being labeled “freak” if they share their secret.  These are the countless kids who are born with paranormal powers.  Although their parents try to understand their mysterious ability, they often live in extreme isolation with no place to turn.  Until now.

Watch as psychic/medium Chip Coffey and clinical psychologist Dr. Lisa Miller come to the aid of these remarkable children, who discover they are not alone.  Follow them as they compare notes, discuss long held-in feelings, and with guidance, bravely seek out the spirits they dread in six eerie episodes.

PSYCHIC KIDS: CHILDREN OF THE PARANORMAL is an intense journey into the lives of children who live with gifts they frequently see as burdens.  With the help of caring experts, they begin to understand and manage their powers, realizing their potential both as psychics and human beings.
