If you are looking for a specific type and don't want all the titles to scroll through, go to the WHAT'S NEW tab. Here you may choose the type, as well as, a time frame, up to 2 months.

Searching for Early Library History

We are seeking information on the history of the library to preserve for historical purposes. In particular, we are hoping to verify that the library was used as a hospital during the 1918 Spanish influenza epidemic. It seems to have been referred to as the Momence Red Cross Hospital.

If anyone has any photographs or newspaper articles pertaining to the early years of the library, we would greatly appreciate the opportunity to scan or photocopy them to add to the library files. Originals will be returned to the owner.
