History Center Displays

The library history center has been privileged over the years to have many items of interest and historical value loaned for display so that the community may enjoy them.  The library would like to thank the many people who have, and continue to share, the rich community resources available to them with others.  Currently on display in the history center are:

  •  Large selection of oil lamps on indefinite loan from Mrs. Robert Presley.

Other collections currently on display in the history center include:
