Staring News: A sinister man is still staring at people through the shelves in a library, making them feel really uncomfortable and forcing them to hastily choose books.

The man, who is thought to be in his mid-fifties, reportedly stands the other side of the ‘B’ shelf of the fiction section at the Croydon Central Library and makes eye contact with whoever is browsing books on the other side.

“I was happily browsing the Emily Brontë selection when I looked up and noticed this weird man staring right at me,” said Anne Gibbon-Pâté “I tried to go back to flicking through Wuthering Heights but he kept on staring at me with those cold, hollow eyes.”

“I tried to ignore him – but in the end I panicked, grabbed the nearest Dan Brown book and quickly left.”

Previously the man was reported on the other side of the ‘M’ shelf, leading to a massive increase in people borrowing the Twilight books by Stephanie Meyers.
