University's First Librarian Haunts Original Library
Agne Milner, the first librarian at Illinois State University (Normal), makes her post-life home at Williams Hall on the ISU campus, according to several faculty, staff and students who say they have evidence of her existence.
Milner is described as benign and friendly, said Jo Rayfield, ISU's archivist whose office is in Williams Hall.
"She is a kind, gentle person," Rayfield said, describing her own close encounter with Milner one Sunday morning when she was looking at microfilm.
Rayfield said she sensed Milner's presence, which was much like the feeling that comes when someone looks over your shoulder to ask what's on television.
