Library to host ghost video: A Halloween Tradition

OREGON – For years, rumors have persisted that the Oregon Public Library is haunted.  Do ghosts roam the 101 year-old building? Apparently, they do.

Last year a video surfaced proving that a friendly Gov. Frank Lowden, whose portrait hangs in the gallery of the library, does in fact roam the building after hours. The video, shot by local cinematographer Bob Coine, shows the governor enjoying the library by night.

The Lowden “ghost” is seen reading a Time magazine on which he is the cover photo. In part two of the ghost videos, Lowden finds love among the other portraits in the gallery.

Services offered by the Oregon Public Library include passport applications, reading programs, special events, book clubs, newspapers, magazines, and a collection of music CDs and movies. Even “ghosts” can find something they are interested in at the library.

Click on the ghost video link on the library’s website at www.oregon.lib.il. to see if the Oregon Public Library really is haunted.
