My coworker Leigh and I took a little walk beneath our library. Five floors beneath our library. I was pretty creeped out as I had heard lots of stories about…things…that have gone on down there. One of the stories that’s been verified concerns a nice little raccoon guy who broke into the library and who, thankfully, I’ve never met. Other tales I’ve heard have been harder to verify. I can’t tell if staff is just trying to mess with the new girl (me) or what.
In any case, real creepy crawlies or not, the decks below my library definitely freak me out:
So, why were Leigh and I poking around our library’s sub-basements? Well, we’re revisiting the story of Agatha Cunningham, of course. If you don’t know about Agatha, here’s a short movie that some former interns, Roger and Peter, made before I started working at Central library.
Watch at your own risk.
And don’t venture below the library alone:

P.S. There’s not a lot of available information on the partial subway station, but there’s a little on it here and here.
