Real Ghost Stories

Quiet In The Library


I was searching for a very small book in a rather large library. I had been looking for a good 30 minutes and I had wondered into one of the back sections of the world history section. I didn't mind, I am usually in a library of some kind and being alone is something I have been used to for years.

I kept looking for the book but also had an eye out for my then boyfriend Dan (made up). He liked to sneak up on me and see how high I would jump, real charmer, that one. I was about to give up and stood from a squatting position. When I double-checked my ref. Number (for the billionth time) I heard "SHHHHHH" in my right ear. I jumped, of course, and was about to tear into Dan.

I turned to my right side and no one was there. I was completely alone in the entire room. I suddenly didn't need that book so badly after all and well "booked". I rushed to the counter to check out the books I did have and asked if anyone else was there (hoping Dan had tricked me somehow). "Nope, your the last one. Have a nice day." the librarian smiled and walked me to the door. Where she promptly locked it after me.

I have no idea who it might have been but they were a real stickler for the rules. I had only mumbled "d@#n book"

Ha! Great story. I wouldn't have been able to get out of there fast enough. Reminds me of the ghost at the beginning of Ghostbusters. 😉

Wow great story! I don't blame you for running out. If that was me they would have had to get me down from the ceiling. LOL 😆 If you ever go back to the library let us know if anything else happens.
Thanks for sharing your story, and Best Wishes 😊

I agree with book_luver123 about the librarian's spirit. Obviously they wasn't very happy with your language in a library. I don't blame you for leaving though. 😨
Maybe try researching some of the building's history. Let us know if anything interesting comes up. 😁

God Bless.

That sounds like the ghost of a librarian. 😊 Try finding out the history of the building. ❤
