Niagara Gazette — And so the question remains ... is the library haunted? Wall, one of the tried-and-true investigators said that she was not sure she would say that the LaSalle Library is “haunted” but “it had spirit activity when we really looked.”
Petrazzoulo said that the LaSalle Library has always been a second home to her since she was a young girl and she was sure that others in the past have felt the same, so she could understand if in the afterlife they decided to stick around for a while longer. She would enjoy their company.
