Happy Halloween!

Since I didn’t get any answers to last Friday’s Minute Mystery, I’ll leave it up for another week. Take a look and leave a comment with your best guess!

I also wanted to mention these ghost stories from Ohio libraries. My favorites are the stories from Hinckley Library:

Books left out the night before would sometimes be reshelved, while others (especially Anne Rice novels) would be flung to the floor during the night. Others have felt an odd presence in the upper rooms, occasionally paper clips sail through the air, and a furnace man once saw a ghostly figure on the basement stairs. The ghosts are believed to be those of Orlando Wilcox and his daughter Rebecca (1837–1869), who lived in a cabin on the site before the house was built.

I wouldn’t mind if a ghost wanted to move into the Westerville Public Library and reshelve books! ;)

Have you ever had a ghostly experience, in a library or anywhere else?
