100 Years And Counting!

Did you know that there was a booklet published in 1981 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the library?  It was written by Jody Clark, illustrated by Betty Heselton, and gives a concise history of the first centennial.

 

Recently we found a small box of these booklets tucked into the back of a closet.  They are now at the front desk and can be yours for the price of any monetary donation.
Here’s a taste of what you will find in it: 

 

A lovely sketch of the fireplace in the Hazzard Reading Room
