This is the first year we have started using the Ghost Walk Volunteers. We have a hand-picked group of eight. We rotate a few at a time for each Ghost Walk. Their names may appear often in the on-going reports. Emily, Tiffany, Ursula, Cheyenne, Hannah, Kenedie, Kyle and Shalise.

9/26/2014 Regular Ghost Walk Report

As usual we had four tours. I guided tours 1 & 3 and Bianca Jorgensen did 2 & 4.

Tour 1-Usually the earlier tour is a little quieter.   This was the case this night. We did have some KII action, cold spots and unknown noises. There were many “newbies” during this walk. They were very quiet and did not join in the questions and EVP session much. I have not reviewed the digital record evidence yet or the video record.

Tour 2-I sat this one out but I understand they used the ghost box in the back area of Youth Services. There is a small table and chairs there and the group sat and asked questions. For the first time “captain” came up several times.

Tour 3-A couple people reportedly saw shadows in the stacks. Someone hear a little girl or young lady speak in or by the Lady’s Room. Several noises were heard in the Young Adult area. Some light play was seen towards the Front Desk area. The smell of tobacco was very evident in the Young Adult area but it moved around a bit, then it just disappeared. The restroom I the Staff Lounge was really great. Lots of hits on the KIIs and EMF meters. A man, Tracy Clements, stated that he saw a shadow move in the main floor of the library. I told him to take a photo. He sent it in and it looks like a “spaceman” so that is what I have dubbed it. Wow. Good stuff.

Tour 4-I tagged along for this one. Several people heard voices and at least two saw shadows. I saw shadows in the stacks. One lady said she felt like she was being touched on the arm. We had good luck with the ghost box and had a very unusual happening. One lady asked while in the Staff Lounge if she could try to talk to her son that had dead. We said of course. She asked for him and every device in the room lit up. We also thought we heard the ghost box saying James which was his name. No dry eyes in the room at that point.

10/25/2014 Regular Ghost Walk

As usual we had four tours. I guided tours 1 & 3 and Bianca Jorgensen did 2 & 4.

Tour 1-For this group, 2/3 were new to the Ghost Walks. There were several in Halloween costumes which I don’t know if it helps or scares away the ghosts. The KIIs lit up several times in the Ladies Room and one man stated he felt cold. As we moved around the library we smelled tobacco again. No activity in the Young Adult section at all. It felt “dead” (no pun intended). The Staff Lounge was more active. We had lots of KII hits and the EMF detector with the orange dome sounded off many times. The ghost box said “Ursula” several times. This is not a common names, so we were very pleased.

Tour 2-Bianca was working with the ghost box and received several names – James, Captain, Ursula, Annie, and one lady’s name I can’t remember. It was a new one. The KII’s were very active most of the tour. The Staff Lounge seemed to be the most active. In the restroom there was once again tons of activity. No one wanted to leave. That was the best!

Tour 3-Voices, shadows and cold spots in several places-Ladies Room, Youth Services, and Staff Lounge. The KII’s were generally lighting up most of the night. We tried the ghost box and got sentences but we could not make it all out. That always makes us nuts. We heard a man and a woman. Also what seemed like a child spoke. We asked are you a child and we heard “yes”. The orange domed EMF detector sounded and lit up many times in the Staff Lounge. The ghosts seem to always be up there. There was the sound of running in the hallway by the Staff Lounge as well.
