Hawkes, Judith. Julian’s House (New York: Signet, 1991) 381 p.
Haunted house investigators are assisted by Colin Robinson, librarian at the Skipton Public Library in Massachusetts. Colin is 65 and painfully shy. He is very proud of his library. “He was proud of the cross-referenced card catalog, the quiet shelves of books, the scarred reading tables polished to a shine—for he did all the work himself, except for mopping the floors.... Above all he was proud of his own private project, the town history on which he spent hours of research and honest love.” (p. 105).
