Ghost Log 1993

March 12, 2008 on 3:45 pm | In Ghost Log Entries | No Comments

The “Ghost Log” was started in 1993, just after I started working for the library. I had heard the staff telling stories of the unexplained events happening in the library. It occured to me that I should ask, “Are you writing any of this down?” It turns out nothing had been officially documented. So with permission from the Head Librarian and Library Director, we started the “Ghost Log”.

The following are a portion of the official “Ghost Log” entries:


During the summer the answering machine turned on and off several times.


Also in August, not sure which day, I heard Morse code back by isle 1 & 2.

Vicki and I were talking in the workroom one morning and something flipped the switch out at the circ desk and made the speakers in the workroom make a noise. I went out to circ and the switch was turned on. I knew it was turned off prior because I was cleaning around it.
