The unsuspecting public may not realize that the library is home to many restless spirits. Ghostly apparitions and foul aberrations are held at bay within the binding of many well-rumored tomes of lore.
Resting on the shelf beside many normal, everyday books, you will find stories of the macabre, volumes of forbidden knowledge, and ghastly tales of things that lurk beyond our knowledge. The very brave — or the very foolish — may explore these and many more at the Newport Beach Public Library.
Take for instance, "The Collected Writings of Ambrose Bierce." Bierce was a prolific writer of the late 1800s and early 1900s, but disappeared without a trace sometime after 1913. Perhaps his ghostly imaginings brought him in contact with a reality beyond our own? Be your own judge and read haunting tales such as "The Middle Toe of the Right Foot," "Present at a Hanging," and many more.
