We found this week’s story & we are dying (pun intended) to get more information about the ghost in the Milner Library at Illinois State University. The library was named for Angeline Milner, an adored librarian whom students often referred to affectionately as “Aunt Ange.” She took up her position at the school in February of 1890 and was instantly recognized for her passion and dedication to the school & its students.
After 37 years on the job, the story goes that she was in the biology section, organizing books when she collapsed and died some time after. Though her beloved library has since received a new home, those who work in the original building are convinced that her spirit lingered behind, intent on keeping up her life’s work.
