A Paranormal Investigation of the Historic Harris House and Library

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to investigate the paranormal? With books, television shows, movies and the like covering paranormal stories there’s obviously a lot of curiosity.

Come get your questions answered as the New York Shadow Chasers team talks about how they do what they do and teach the basics (and show off some of their cool technology)! This is one of our fall fundraisers. You MUST get your tickets in advance for BOTH the lecture (starting at $6) AND the investigation IF you want to be part of the investigation. Lecture tickets are for a donation of $5, and investigation tickets are for a donation of $15. Tickets are limited and available on a first-come-first-serve basis.

The investigation will start shortly after the lecture ends, attendees will be seated in different spots in the historic Harris House and the library, lights will be turned off, observations will be made and recorded, and then, approximately 30 minutes into the investigation, lights will come on and people will shift to a new location, and observe and record another 30 minutes. We’ll do a final chat about what we found (or didn’t) and post our results.

This fundraiser will be on October the 25th with the lecture starting at 6pm. You MUST get tickets in advance as they will be very limited.

A Little but Lively Library in the Heart of Upstate New York

Located in the small town of Otego, New York, the Harris Memorial Library has a rich history in large part thanks to the lovely and adventurous Daisy or “Dasa” Harris who willed her Victorian-Italianate-style home to the village of Otego–so long as it became, and remained, a library. Her house became known as the Harris Memorial House, and when it was realized that the small rooms were not conducive to a library’s organization, and that the weight of so many books and their shelves might collapse the historic structure, a modern addition was added to the back of the building to house the library.

We offer free computer and wi-fi access, and have a 3D printer  –  things Dasa likely never imagined being part of the library she was so intent on providing room for.

We invite you to explore our history and book shelves with us, and learn about our inclusive and varied programs. Like us and follow us on Facebook to get the most up-to-date listing of activities.
