The Boscobel Library is in the process of establishing a local history collection and has started a monthly library History Club. Library History Club meets the first Thursday of each month in the downstairs clubroom of the library building, unless a special event has been planned.
The upcoming April meeting will be such a special event: On Saturday, April 20th from 10 am to noon we'll be welcoming special guests and Boscobel natives from out of town for an Easter weekend visit. Mark Moran will bring his collection of memorabilia from the Boscobel Fairgrounds and Hildebrand Store for show and tell. All club members and visitors are welcome to join in the discussion and share their stories and memorabilia. Coffee and light morning snacks will be served.
We look forward to seeing you then.
For updates and additional Library History Club and Archive information, please follow our page on Facebook: @boscolibraryhistoryclub.
The current local history resources of the library includes the following:
General Boscobel history publications and microfilm of the Boscobel Dial and its predecessors going back to 1863 are available on demand at the main library circulation desk (PLEASE NOTE: We are in the process of installing a brand new, digital microfilm reader. We anticipate it will be up and running by the end of April. Until this project is completed however, we're temporarily unable to provide access for our microfilm collection as the old film reader was damaged beyond repair by a power surge. )
The downstairs history room archive and special collection items such as the Karsten Obituary Index and Ruka Centennial Photo Collection can be accessed by appointment. Please contact the library staff at (608) 375-5723 for additional information.
