Roger Delacorte [1] (also known as Library Administrator) [2] was the administrator of the main branch of the New York City Public Library.


Primary CanonEdit


Roger Delacorte called Dr. Spengler, Stantz, and Venkman from Columbia University in response to Alice's encounter with the Library ghost. He was in the Reading Room and observed Peter's prank on Egon. Roger approached them and introduced himself then led them to Alice. He hoped they could clear this issue up quickly and quietly. He listened to Peter's questioning of Alice and became skeptical to which Peter famously replied, "Back off, man. I'm a scientist." After the men touched the etheric plane and fled the library, he ran after them because he still wanted to know if they could solve the problem. Peter yelled they could get back to him. Roger stopped on the stairs.
