Do you believe in ghosts and the paranormal? Whether you are a firm believer or skeptic at heart, this program will appeal to you. Ohio Researchers of Banded Spirits (ORBS)  will present, “Investigating the Paranormal” on Saturday, Oct. 24th at the Crossroads Branch. The discussion will include information regarding types of supernatural entities and equipment used during home investigations. Collected audio and video evidence, shared by the group, will lead to an audience question and answer participation time.

ORBS may sound familiar, since the group has appeared on several television broadcasts including Animal Planet’s “The Haunted”, Biography Channel’s “My Ghost Story”, the History Channel’s “Haunted History” and Destination America Channel’s “Paranormal Survivor”. More information about this group may be obtained online at This library program will begin at 1:30pm.
