Ghostly legend here tells of a young woman named Gottlieb, an English major who worked on the library’s fourth floor, was found hanging from an oak tree. Foul play was suspected, and after that, strange things happened at the library. Book carts moved by themselves, automatic doors opened without being triggered, and strange sounds echoed through the building. Some claimed to see a young lady with a green backpack, just like the one Gottlieb used, vanish into thin air on the fourth floor.
