Report by Micki Gilmore

First let me say, this was amazing.  I have helped with the Ghost Walk once before and we never had as much interaction as we did this year. 

Friday, October 29th, 2010

The evening began with high energy.  You can sometimes feel when something will happen.  There is a “charge” to the air.  Ellie and I did our introduction and tried to start the program by using the computer and the projector.  Neither one wanted to cooperate.  Lots of IT troubles.  So, like good librarians, we punted.  We talked about the history of the library and the told about the Ghost Log and some of its stories.   We discussed the equipment we were using, K2, EMF, and digital recorders. I asked for the protective white light to surround all of us and we began.

We then broke into the first group.  Ellie was the leader and will report on their findings.  They were gone a long time, so I knew they had had something going on or they would have been back sooner.   Once they returned, she gave a brief report to the waiting patrons.  And we counted out the next 20 or so for my tour.

We began our tour by the Gallery and restrooms.  Small groups of people were allowed to go into the restrooms and do an EVP session.   So of the girls in the group said they heard whispers and someone got silly and scared the others and there was a bit of screaming.  I checked on them and reminded them there is no horseplay.  There was no more of the screaming after that.  Next we talked about what has been reported by the front of the library and Circ Desk, then on to Youth Services.  As we progressed we did EVP sessions.  One teenager SJ, said she saw something move across the library before we passed the front desk. 

We stopped and discussed the stories in the Youth Services areas and did the EVP work.  We are still awaiting results.  We walked along the back of the library and someone said they saw something, but no report has been written up and given to me, to bad.  We took pictures as we went.  Nothing yet.  The K2 seemed  to be responding as I asked questions.  Several times in the YA area we seemed to be getting answers then it stopped so we moved on.  In the area of the adult computers we had a little more.  We then moved on to the back workroom and a little more.  Once we entered the back hallway there was a lot.  Ellie had told a story about two friends that did not know each other, telling her about a Michael.  So we asked if Michael was there, the K2 went full on.  Each time we asked a question regarding Michael we did get very good results.  Also we asked if there was a little girl there and she seemed to be with us most of the night. 

After a time we moved into the garage and we again had more lights light up on the K2 and the EMF sounded off.  We moved on to the Staff Lounge upstairs and one of the girls was moving the EMF detector back and forth and happened to move it next to me.  It went to the maximum.  I had said to the spirits they could come and stand by me if they were feeling shy.  Well apparently they were.  (We checked me later and there was nothing). The people were very excited, but they were quiet and respectful.  Reluctantly we moved back downstairs and into the Multi-purpose room so the next tour could go.

Many people were saying that they had voices of their cell phones or recorders.  I hope they continue to send the findings in so I can review them with Ellie.   All in all, Friday was an amazing night.  We had tons of results on both meters.  Wow.
