History Club Meets This Thurs, 12/6, Help Your Library Next Monday 12/10

Boscobel Library History Club and Library Archive will be meeting This coming Thursday, Dec 6th at 6:30 PM in the downstairs clubroom of the library. History Club is open to the public for everyone interested in Boscobel and the surrounding area's past. We look at and discuss old photos, businesses, families, people events, places and more. 

Each month we feature a special topic, followed by an open meeting "show and tell" where people can talk about their local history interests, share mementos from their personal collections or projects, and ask questions to try to figure out  "the rest of the story". All subjects and interests related to local history get covered during these fascinating discussions!  

This month we'll be talking about "local color", memorable characters, dramatic events and "notorious" stories from Boscobel's past. The club meetings and member's work add information to the new and growing library archive of original and reference materials related to local history. 

At this Thursday's meeting we will also be displaying the recently acquired Karsten Obituary Index, a treasure trove of family and biographical information dating back to the early 20th century.  Everyone with an interest in local and regional history or just plain curious about what the club does is welcome to join us for an exciting evening traveling back in time. For more information, please call the library 608-375-5723.
