January New Titles
Local History Lives Here
If you have family members who attended Mannsville School during the years 1939 to 1941 you will be especially interested in this!
Mannsville Library recently received a box full of local history in the mail. The history came in the form of a scrapbook kept by Mannsville School’s World War II-era history teacher and librarian, Miss Marion S. Pike. Miss Pike kept hundreds of news articles, school programs, photos, and other memorabilia all pertaining to her students, other village members, and moments in Mannsville life during the years 1939-1941.
Also included in the package was a bundle of photos of local WWII servicemembers. Unfortunately, many of the photos have no names on the back, but we feel sure they are the grand- and great-grandparents of some of today’s Mannsville area residents.
We will soon begin posting images of the newspaper articles and photos on the website and Facebook page. As we identify the servicemembers’ photos, we will use the North Country Library System’s Fold3 database, available here in the library, to learn more about each individual’s military service.
Check out a few of our new titles!
Lots of new reads at the library — here are a few…
Bookclub Meeting Jan. 14, 2023
Don’t forget the Mannsville Library Bookclub meeting this Saturday, January 14, at 9:00 AM in the library. We will discuss December’s innocent, easy-read Farmer Boy, by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
January’s selection is a little more dastardly–Daphne Du Maurier’s Rebecca–to be discussed on February 11. There is still time to pick up a copy if you would like to take part.
The Bookclub is open to one and all and is held at the library at 9 AM on the second Saturday of every month. Come join in some good coffee and conversation!
