Library presentation examines haunted history



We ask questions and then if they tell us something, we give our input on why we think something may have happened, how to do EVPs correctly, (and) how to take photographs correctly,” Meggs said.

Meggs advised would-be ghost hunters to take at least three photographs of a single location so they can be compared later on if an anomaly is found in one picture.

Library Director William Pixley said the Ghost Society presentation fits in well with the library's mission.

Basically, it's dealing with the history and the folklore of Southern Illinois and therefore is educational in nature,” Pixley said. “And that's one of the library's functions is to educate the public. It's also entertaining, which is another one of the library's functions.”

A second library program dealing with the paranormal will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday. It will feature a speech by Sindy Smith about her paranormal experiences at Wirsing Manor in Belleville.
