What ever happened to all the books inside the library after the shootings? I'm assuming those covered in blood (Especially the books near E&D's bodies as well as blood from victims) got replaced. But what about those that were left untouched, were they replaced or put in the new current library?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong! But I would assume they were all destroyed. As they came from a library that had a few pipe bombs explode in it, random gun shots scattered around, etc. So its fair to say that a lot of them had some sort of damage, and likely smelled of smoke.

Most of them were either soaked by blood, or damaged from water out of the sprinklers. Either way, they were disposed of.

I thought sprinklers didn't go off in the library and only went off downstairs?

I read an article years back from a woman who helped with the cleaning of the library. Some books were saved and not full of Eric's brain goo. I can't remember what happened to them - I think they may have gone to charity shops or something rather than put in the new library.

I was wondering about that as well. I do not think the library's sprinklers were activated. If they were then all the pics/videos coming out would have showed everything being soaked. You would have been able to see the water. Plus the pics and videos that showed the blood stains would have been very noticeable if the carpet had been water logged.

Correct me about the sprinklers thing, I am not sure about it. Some shelves were shot at too, if I recall correctly.

If there were any around I'd love to have one, course verifying it's really from the library would be nigh impossible.

Not saying I'm all in on the paranormal but when I've researched/watched paranormal stuff it's mentioned that objects can absorb emotions and stuff from horrible events.

Is that mularky?

That depends on your beliefs. I myself have had enough strange things happen around me and other close family, that I have no doubts there are things that happen that just cannot be explained. I wholeheartedly believe that places and sometimes things can absorb very strong emotions and energy.

While some people would say "Nah that's impossible! Things like that aren't real." But those people have never lived my life, nor had the experiences I've had.

Yeah I don't know, I'm in the middle but having a brain matter book in the house and seeing if anything happened would be cool.

Hard to believe that there wouldn't be some books out there then. I'd like to have one, but no way to ensure it's real. Sad

I for one believe that spirits can latch onto things. Maybe not to the extent of Ed and Lorraine Warren opening up a museum, but I have had my fair share of supernatural occurrences that I believe were due to objects.

I agree, there would be no way of authenticating it.

I think in my school library at that time the books had little "pockets" or sleeves added where you had to fill out your name and dates the book was borrowed. Plus most libraries stamp their books, don't they? The stamp itself wouldn't be enough I guess since it could be from any year, but if they used that card system maybe there really are a few verifiable books floating around.

One would assume that the books were stamped, but to my knowledge no one has ever come across one that was possibly in the library on 4/20. Which leads me to believe they were probably destroyed.

They could have SURVIVED, but with the due date form on the front *That shows when the book was due* replaced. Who knows, maybe they ended up in other schools? Reading

I also got Dave Cullen's "Columbine" from my High School's library. *Its due on Tuesday the 17th I believe* but like maybe, just maybe some books could have come from Columbines? Reading

That is one possibility. Some may have been saved, or they all could have been tossed. No one really knows what was done with them.

They built a new library which was funded by money raised/donated, so the books were likely all replaced. But there has been much speculation on what did happen to the books that were in the old library. Some would have been blood splattered, some damaged by pipe bombs, crickets, gun fire, and smoke. One would think they were all destroyed. But no one really know if everything was tossed or not.

Imagine getting a book from a sale/shop of some sort and you somehow find out Eric Harris's brain matter landed on that book...

Given that the books would have been considered a bio-hazard, they were probably disposed of. I'd imagine that they just tossed all the books on that whole shelf and the shelf next to it to avoid any sort of issues.

I can confirm sprinklers did NOT go off in the library.
