If you’ve worked in my library for any length of time, you know about our resident ghost, Agatha Cunningham. I think I had been at my new job for a matter of weeks when Mr. Edwin started telling me about her. At first, I didn’t believe him. Then, I saw the video made by our interns, Peter and Roger:
Since then, I’ve had my own run-in with Agatha and it wasn’t exactly fun. That’s a whole other thing and frankly I think my coworkers are sick of me talking about it.
In any case, my coworker and Leigh and I have created a display regarding what we do know about Agatha’s disappearance. You see, later on in the month, we’re having a viewing of the above mini-documentary and we wanted to get the word out about our program. Not only will we be showing the Agatha video, we’ll also being hosting a Q+A panel discussion with many of the people featured in the movie. Agatha-non-believers can come in and ask us questions about her themselves.
Take a look at our display. Here are some wide shots:
We tried to set it up like panels in a comic book so that we could better tell Agatha’s story, especially for those patrons who haven’t seen the Agatha movie:
We included some newspaper stories:
And lots of stills from Roger and Peter’s movie:
Leigh added some really nice panels to the display (I think I have good ideas, but I’m never as good at executing displays as Leigh is):
A patron came in the other day and asked my coworker Rakisha for a book on Agatha, and, sadly, no such book yet exists. I hope someone tells her story one day, especially for the skeptics out there:
Until next time, fearless library lovers:
