Arthur Johnson Memorial Library: A Paranormal Playground? By Pat Veltri
It was business as usual on a Thursday evening at the Arthur Johnson Memorial Library, the one night of the week that the library extends its hours to 9:00 p.m. Library director, Thayla Wright, now retired, was working the late shift, along with a co-worker, who was shelving books on the upper level. The building was silent due to a temporary lull in patron activity. Seated at the front desk, Thayla was facing a shelf of children’s mystery books just inside the front entryway. A few books were free-standing on top of the shelf, creating a display to attract the attention of young readers. She vividly recalls, “That evening I looked up and out at the juvenile section and saw a book sail off the shelf in an arc and land eight feet or so away from the shelf. There was no one but me on that floor. While books very occasionally overbalanced and fell off the top of the shelf, landing on the floor directly in front of it, they did not sail through the air as though thrown or tossed. There was only one possible reaction – I put it back on the shelf. I was not the only staff member to see this phenomenon, usually reported with the opening statement of ‘You won’t believe this…’”.
