2009

May 15, 2009 Afternoon to closing   MG

I was working at the Circ Desk at the Check-In computer.  I heard a noise from behind me towards the public telephone and entry to the Gallery.  It sounded to me like someone was there fidgeting.  When I turned to look I was sure I would see someone, but there was no one there.   I had the feeling I was being watched.  This happened about four times that day.  I walked over and saw nothing that would cause the noises.  ???

The same thing happened again.  On May 15th, I was working at the Circ Desk at the Check-In computer.  I heard a noise from behind me towards the public telephone and entry to the Gallery.  It sounded to me like someone was there fidgeting.  When I turned to look I was sure I would see someone, but there was no one there.   I had the feeling I was being watched.  This happened twice that night.  I walked over and saw nothing that would cause the noises.  ???

 

July 10, 2009 Ellie/Staff

On Friday, July 10, 2009, I had a ghostly experience.  This event occurred at approximately 4:55 pm.  I am a librarian (Ellie…yes. Me again).  I parked out back on this day because I needed to get something from the garage.  The other librarians went out the front door.  I entered the back hallway and parted ways with one of my colleagues who locked the door leading to the offices, thus leaving me alone in the hallway.  All doors leading to other places were closed and void of humans. 

 

First of all, I unlocked the doorway under the stairs and put something away.  I turned off the light and locked the door.  Next I opened the back door leading to the outside and I placed my bag on the back step there.  I shut the door and made sure it was locked.  It was.  I next pushed on the door to Outreach hat leads through to the garage. This door was locked, but as often happens with this tricky door it was no actually latched thus allowing me to simply push it open.  I did so. 

 

As I entered the room I had an instant “feeling” of a “presence” in the room with me.  I had the urge to turn on the light, which I resisted, telling myself something along the lines of, “Don’t be ridiculous! It’s only a few feet to the door to the garage.”  With heart racing I pushed the door leading to the hallway all the way shut, so that it was latched.  I was alone in the dark and the feeling of a presence became SO overwhelming that I could not stand it.  I was obviously moving very quickly to the other door leading to the garage by this time.  Just as my hand was about to touch the door know I said aloud, ”Well hello there ghosties!”  As the last word left my lips…there was a LOUD series of knocks.  Three or four of them, “BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!” 

 

And I confess to being more that a BIT scared at this point!  I fumbled with the light switch to the garage.  I could not tell where the banging came from…maybe the back door?  Maybe the bottom door for the stairwell?  Maybe Vicki Roth’s office?  Maybe from upstairs?  I am not sure, but it was loud and I couldn’t wait to get out of there!  I turned on the light and immediately opened the garage door.  I was laughing a bit and thinking that they really got me good that time!  And I looked around back at the back door and into the hallway from that side and did not see anyone.  I quickly accomplished what needed to be done and just as I was about to close the garage door three more loud, door rattling knocks, from INSIDE the Outreach room happened?  “BANG! BANG! BANG! ” 

 

I waited about a minute and just had to check and make sure that no one was in the Outreach room…I opened the door..very slowly…held my breath…looked inside the room and …there was no one there; at least not anyone alive.  The feeling was still so strong I wanted to scream or laugh or BURST!  I laughed and got the heck out of there and closed the garage door on my way out.  I drove around to the front of the building and left with the other librarians. 

 

I called one of my co-workers and asked her as we were leaving, if anyone had gone back down the back hallway.  She said that nobody had and that all of them had seen by the front doors waiting for 5:00 pm along with a gentleman who was using the multi-purpose room for the evening.  Everyone was accounted for.  STRANGE!!!

I went into the Ladies Room and was about to step into a stall when I noticed a noise coming from the next stall. It sounded like the toilet paper was spinning.  I stopped and looked in.  It was the toilet paper roll and it was still moving.

A gentleman stopped by the Front Desk, and ask me if there had been any “ghost” activity lately.  I told him that in fact there had been a report just last week.  He said he had one to add.  He went into the Men’s Room.  He saw no one else around.  He stepped into a stall and suddenly the toilet in the next stall flushed by its self.  He looked and there was no one around.  He asked it we have self-flushing toilets and I answered we do not.  He asked if this has happened before and I answered not that I have ever heard and I have worked here since 1992.

I was typing the previous reports for the Ghost Log, got up to help a patron.  When I came back the document I had just been working on was gone.  No one had closed it and usually if you had previously been typing, the computer will save a draft of your work.  It was not there.  Interesting.
