3. Ghosthunters investigation of the Carnegie Library in Homestead. A library built on bloodshed? That's gotta have some paranormal activity going on!

The place is taunted by shadowy figures, books falling off shelves spontaneously, apparitions and voices. (Submitted on October 12, 2011, by Mike Wintermantel of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.)
