Program Announcement: Letters from the Library's Collections

Do you remember hearing stories about people writing letters? On paper?! On Wednesday, August 25, at 6:30 p.m. in the Library Program Room, Archives Librarian Ron Davidson will show letters from the 19th and 20th Centuries on a variety of topics from the historical collections of the Library’s Archives Research Center. You will see letters from early settlers of Sandusky and share their experiences and hardships; view the last letter written by a condemned prisoner at Johnson’s Island; read soldiers’ letters to home; and see how business transactions were often handled through correspondence. Registration is requested. To register, call 419-625-3834 and press 0 to speak with a switchboard operator (10-5, Monday-Friday) or press Option 6 to leave a message.
