Are you like many people out there that do not have cable or television of any kind, but you love the ghost hunting shows? While working at the library, I hear countless people telling me just that. Television is expensive, but the library can be your go-to source. The library has books and we all love to read a good ghost story, but many of us find we don’t always have the time to read and would rather watch a good television show or DVD. I am one of these people.
For many years now, I have watched Syfy Channels Ghost Hunters. I was intrigued at first because I work in a haunted library. Once I started watching, I began to learn a few tricks. I had been the keeper of the library Ghost Log since 1993 and in 2006 we started the first official Ghost Walks. More and more reports began coming in. As a host of a ghost walk, you need to at least have a basic knowledge of the equipment and how it can be used. I found that by watching the television shows I could at least gather a general idea of how the ghost gadgets are used. My oldest son took it upon himself to start buying me a few gadgets for my own. I started using them during the tours and soon these tools were a big part of what we do. Bianca, another staff member, also has her own ghost hunting kit and brings it in as well. The library also now has a ghost hunting kit, which includes a KII, EMF detector, ghost box and Ovilus. We have learned so many techniques from the shows. Where else do you learn such things?
Have you checked our shelves lately? The staff have been busy trying to add many of the favorite series. Not only are they great for entertainment value, but they are a great learning tool for those of us that actually do any type of ghost hunting. The library currently carries Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures, Psychic Kids, and Paranormal State, not to mention countless movies about the paranormal.

Needless to say, there are a vast number of television shows dedicated to the subject. Check your local listings for availability. Many of the shows listed are now available in DVD format or online. Although I have not watched many of those on the list, I have watched those that I could find. Some take the subject more seriously than other, so you will have to decide for yourself what works for you.
We feel the Ghost Walks are an introduction to the paranormal. There are countless varieties and techniques for the correct way to do an investigation, ours is just one of many. When doing a tour, we generally have around 20-25 patrons in each Ghost Walk. Because of this factor, you will find there are varying levels of expertise on the subject.
We provide our own “ghost gadgets” for a few of the patrons to use and try. Those that have become very interested in the subject usually bring their own gadgets to work with. You might see KIIs, EMF detectors, infrared cameras, ghost boxes, etc. Depending on the dedication (and budget) of the patrons, we see lots of interesting devices.
I have finally been able to review some evidence from past Ghost Walks. I just completed the video clips and I will be posting a few videos at a time. It would be very helpful if you would watch the clips and give me some feedback. I realize that at many times we get excited during the tours, the tour guides as well, so I apologize for that. Please take a few minutes and watch the clips.
I hope you find the clips interesting and informative.
Please leave a comment. Thank you.
