  1. I have heard creepy sounds. My friend and I would go to the library and sit at the kid section (which is by the basement door) and our internet would stop working or it would be very slow. I used to go there to check out books and movies and use the internet.

  2. My friend and I stayed until close one winter night and we watched the librarian leave and nobody else was in the library. The little battery candles flickered on and off and we heard crashing as if books or bookshelves were being pushed over. We ran across the street and waited for my friend’s grandma to pick us up.
