Williams hall - Illinois State University
Normal, Illinois
Located in the heart of the Illinois State University
campus is a building called Williams Hall. The primary use of this building, constructed in the 1940’s,
is for the storage of extra books from Milner Library,
which is the main library on campus. This quiet
building, with its rows of old books, many of them
out of circulation for years, would seem the last place
where anything strange would happen….. And yet it
does. For William Hall is haunted by the
ghost of the university’s past.
“ A good book is the best of friends”
~ English Proverb
