Collinsville Library Scrapbook;
A History of our Library from 1903-today

If you have any pictures or information about the CV Library, stories you remember about using the library, newspaper articles, program notices or anything you think would be of interest about our history please let me know so we can incorporate it into the scrapbook. Pictures and articles, check out cards, anything like that will add so much to the authenticity of the book. Please contact the Collinsville Library at 596-2840. Robin Bushyhead, CV staff member, is compiling the book for us.

You are welcome to stop by the CV Library anytime to see our first book which covers the years of 1903-1949. We can still add to this book so bring anything you think might be of interest to the community.

Thanks, Susan Babbitt
