You're invited to join us at the library this coming Thursday, March 1st at 6:30 PM for the Library History Club and Archive meeting, downstairs in the clubroom.  Everyone interested in remembering Boscobel's past is invited to attend for a friendly discussion and sharing of memories, artifacts, etc.
