Library Talk

Libraries are full of facts and fictions. Sometimes I just wander through the library trying to imagine a first-time visitor and how they would see the library and the “stuff” we have. I didn’t really get past the magazine shelf before writing this, and I found some pretty interesting material.

The Ohio Woodland , a magazine that has been donated to us for several years caught my eye—the Fall 2015 issue had some pertinent articles for around this area—“Making Places for Little Turkeys to Grow Up,” “Pin Oak—Worthless or Wonderful?” and “The Red-Shouldered Hawk” are just three articles of interest in this slim but informative magazine.

While sitting at the reference table looking at the magazine, I noticed there was a copy of the pages pertaining to Brown County from “List of Pensioners on the Roll January 1883; giving the Name of Each Pensioner, the Cause for Which Pensioned, The Post-Office Address, The Rate of Pension Per Month, and the Date of Original Allowance, as Called for by Senate Resolution of December 8, 1882.” While most of the pensioners are from the Civil War, I was surprised at the number of widows and survivors of the War of 1812. Also interesting were the towns listed besides the expected—De La Palma, Bernard, Burlington Junction, Maple, Sheep Run and more.

People have asked about “food for fines” again this year. We’ve already done one earlier for our Centennial celebration, but we will do a few days this year, next week, week of Thanksgiving we will accept the following in lieu of fines. The pantries need the following: canned fruit, baked beans, canned or boxed potatoes, cereal or rice. Only these items will be accepted and each item equals $3 off your overdue fines, or cold hard cash to help the pantries purchase perishable goods will be accepted at the bargain rate of $1 equals $3 off overdue fines. This does not go towards lost item replacement costs. So during Nov. 23-28 this will apply and we will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.

Lastly, the library Board of Trustees has taken the time to recognize the staff, both on the front line and behind the scenes, for a job well done and you may see a sign out front of each of our buildings at different times. We are always striving to serve the public well, and hope that you find the library useful and friendly.
