What Goes 'Bump' in the Night?

The days are cooling down, the nights are getting longer, and stores like to remind us that this time of year is 'spooktastic'.  But what lies beyond all the candy and scary masks? Paranormal research and investigation moves beyond the television screen to the Gilroy Library when Gloria Young from Ghost Trackers presents a session on Ghost Hunting 101.

Join us on Wednesday, October 23rd at 6:30pm.  Hear about the Ghost Trackers' investigations, see the evidence obtained and how to obtain it and learn how you can become a ghost hunter.

If you want to do your own research, or just give yourself a bit of a scare, check out some of the resources we have available at SCCLD.
