Collinsville Librarian Dr. Susan Babbitt is asking for your help in commemorating President Franklin D. Roosevelt's era:

This year we are entering another History Channel competition for a $1,000 or a DVD player and a set of history tapes. This one is to remember the 60th anniversary of the death of FDR. It will be more difficult to win since we won last year, but I say, give it a go! I have thought of several ways to educate our students about FDR, WWII and all that was taking place at that time. I could use your help on these ideas.

Do you know about WPA and CCC projects in the Collinsville Area?
Do you have pictures of those projects?
Are any of the projects still in use today?
Do you have items we could use for display that have meaning for that time in our history?

I am open to ideas you may have for our presentation. I will need these back by April 16th for display April 16-22nd.

There will be a 4 hour documentary about President Roosevelt, FDR, A Presidency Revealed, on the History Channel April 17 and 18 at 8pm central time.

You can also go to for more information and to enter a contest for a trip to Baltimore, Washington D.C. and New York.

Each TCCL Branch Library had a drawing of their local Books and Bagel entries.

Bonnie Farley won a $15 Gift Certificate to Barnes and Noble and Dawana Thompson won a book journal.

Congratulations to both our winners. All entries, including our two winners, will be put into a drawing at TCCL for several prizes. Novelist, Jacquelyn Mitchard will “Wrap Up” the 2005 Books and Bagels on Tuesday, April 19th ant 7 p.m. at the Central Library on the second floor. Mitchard is the best-selling author of “ The Deep End of the Ocean,” “Twelve Times Blessed,” A Theory of Relativity,” “The Most Wanted,” and the “The Rest of Us.” She will discuss her new book, “The Breakdown Lane,” answer questions and sign books.

We had 122 customers sign up for Books and Bagels and 87 completed the program.

Way to go Collinsville! Your Library Staff loves you!
