On September 24th, 2010 The Ghost Society [Offices located in Pulaski, New York and Watertown, New York] reported to Oswego Public Library that began with a tour of the location along with finding out the claims that were reported. It was noted the OPL underwent a massive renovation and that all that was left of the original structure was mostly the shell and foundation. The team consisted of five investigators, Jeremy Ryder, Matt and Justin Worthington, Cathy Kaine, and Wendi Czirr. Setup of the equipment began at closing of public hours and the case began at 6pm and went to 12:30am.We split into two teams with Matt and Justin taking the front of the building facing the courthouse and upper floors. Jeremy, Cathy Wendi and Charlie took the back and lower floors. Some of the equipment used were a DVR system employing 4 IR cameras, a MEL meter (which measure ambient temperature and EMF fields), Handheld IR thermometers for surface temperature readings. Digital audio recorders, digital cameras, HD handheld video camera, and other such devices. <more>
