For Immediate Release
STILLWATER -The rumors of the haunting of Edmon Low Library will be put to the test Oct. 22 at Ghost State Stories, a Halloween fundraising event for the Stillwater Area United Way.
The event invites students and the community to share campus ghost stories at an open mic session followed by a guided after-hours tour of the building.
“We hear so many rumors about ghosts in the Library, we decided to let people see for themselves,” said Misty Smith, OSU Library United Way co-captain. “The lights are off, the doors are locked, it’s just us. If you are going to see a ghost in the Library, you won’t have a better chance than this.”
Tour guides will lead small groups on a special after-hours ghost walk including a stop in the bell tower room. A fortune teller will provide entertainment while groups wait for a tour.
Doors open at 9:30 p.m. and close at 10:15 p.m. The first 60 people will receive admission. Tickets are available at the door for $10. All proceeds benefit the Stillwater United Way.
