Regular Hours Resume. History Club Meets Feb. 7th

Back to our regular hours at the Boscobel Library, we'll be open until 8pm this evening and at 10am tomorrow morning. If you need a warm spot to defrost after the last couple of days, stop on by!

Library History Club's next meeting will be Thursday February 7th at 6:30 pm downstairs. Some topics up for discussion include:
-The History and maps/ layout of the old Boscobel Fairground between today's High School location and the southern end of Kronshage Park. When was the last fair held? Who exhibited there, what events, individuals and organizations were involved with the fair?
-Boscobel's GAR Hall History and Historical Collection; this important building, its founders and caretakers, and its contents are vital to our community's local history.
-The Crooked Creek and other One-Room Schoolhouses serving Boscobel, a project Nancy Rutherford from the Boscobel Depot Museum is working on.

If you or someone you know has information, recollections, memorabilia or just plain curiosity about these subjects or other "points of interest" from Boscobel's long and rich history, come join us on the 7th for a fun and interesting visit and discussion as we work to pull stories from the past together for future generations. Please call the library with any questions or for further information, 608-375-5723.
