For Immediate Release

STILLWATER - The Edmon Low Library has long been the subject of campus lore. Rumors of spooky activity have spread for years, but on Oct. 29, the community is invited to draw its own conclusions at Ghost State Stories, a ghoulish United Way fundraising event.
The event will kick off in the Peggy V. Helmerich Browsing Room, where there will be open mic campus ghost storytelling and a costume contest. A special after-hours ghost walk in the Library will cover the basement, third floor and fifth floor, with a special stop in the bell tower room.

“United Way improves lives locally by helping support a number of agencies doing very important work in the community.” said Sheila Johnson, dean of libraries and co-chair of Stillwater’s United Way. “This fundraiser is a fun way for everyone to give to the United Way and help support its work here in Stillwater.”

Concession sales will be available and will begin at 9:30 p.m. Doors close at 10:15 p.m. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased in advance or at the door. All proceeds benefit Stillwater United Way.

For advance ticket purchase, call Bonnie Cain-Wood at 405-744-7331. For more information on this event, e-mail lib-pub@okstate.edu or visit www.library.okstate.edu/news/fall10/images/ghoststate.pdf.
