Haunted Library in Dutchess County, NY
It was here Terri J. Garofalo and Donna Parish-Bischoff met for the first time. This was the beginning of IndyPara.
We had plenty of experiences at this venue. A newspaper boy is supposed to haunt here, also a former librarian. We found evidence of both as well as a male spirit in the basement. Local police have seen the apparition of the boy in the window. A glass case of shelves crashed down for no reason once. Mysteriously, nothing was broken. This happened after they had a meeting about bringing in a new library head. We surmised the spirits did not want the other guy to leave.
Highlights of the evening were hearing the moan of a woman in the upstairs great room. I captured it on my voice recorder, fortunately. Down in the basement my camera battery went totally dead. It later resurrected itself for some reason. The basement yielded the presence of a gruff man. Donna was overcome by a grief stricken spirit, which made her tear up. There was a lot of action on the EMF detector as well.
One of the funniest EVPs we picked up was one from a spirit worried about his late library fees. We were honored to capture the voice of the former library aide who actually lived there in an apartment in the building for a while. Her photos are all around. She followed us around commenting, wanting to make herself known.
