1. As you may have heard, the band Coldplay is revealing lyrics from its upcoming album “Ghost Stories” by hiding them in actual ghost stories located in libraries around the world. The band then offers clues on its Twitter feed and asks fans to track them down. Well, guess where one set of lyrics wound up - the Children’s Center in The New York Public Library’s own Stephen A. Schwarzman Building! The lyrics to a song called “O” were found by one New Yorker in Jeff Belanger’s book Who’s Haunting the White House?  It was found 15 minutes after the Library opened after Coldplay posted the clue, “In the library where ghosts were famously busted, look for Jeff B’s kids’ book about spooks in the President’s residence.” Our 42nd Street building was featured in the film Ghostbusters back in the 1980s - that really turns the “clocks” back. Get it?
