    The library IS haunted.
    I am the Director of the team’s official Paranormal Investigations team, the Oakmont Paranormal Society, and we have many photographs, EVPs and Video footage of activtiy within the library’s halls.
    We also open it in October to the Public to tour through with several other teams in order to raise funds for the Library’s programs.

  2. i worked there with a few guys and strange things happened.. Like we would try to drill threw the wall and could not the drill would get stuck or just stop running..other things as well

    • Rodney, I would like to speak with you regarding your experiences. Carol from the Library can tell you how to get in touch with me.

  3. My girlfriend and I stopped by and took pictures of the main entrance outside and we were hoping to find some orbs in the air and I found a human figure in one picture and since we had a picture taken a few seconds after I ended up looking at that one and the person vanished, as I should inform that then it was 12 in the morning and nobody was there.
